Beatrice's story

Beatrice was born in 1960. She is married and has seven children. The most challenging moment of her life came when she lost her mother, two sisters and a brother within two years. Life has been very difficult for her and her family since then and so she decided to join GHAPE in the year 2001.

Beatrice took her first loan of $30 which she invested in farming. She has proven her worth to receive, invest and repay loans in a total amount of $590. The profit she got from the loans was used to pay for her children’s education. Her community also got a lot from her as she increased the amount of available foodstuffs in the local market.

Given this loan of $500, Beatrice plans to buy manure, fertilizers, planting seeds, and 200 liters of palm oil and 100 liters of groundnut oil for retail.

She plans to repay this loan in a timely fashion.
