A loan helped to pay for clearing and weeding his farm, and buy cassava seedlings.


Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is married with five children. They live in a five bedroom house in the Bali Paila quarter North West Region of Cameroon. He has encountered some challenges in life such ill health and death of his beloved father.

He joined GHAPE in 2015 and has taken and successfully repaid two loans. Given a new loan, Emmanuel plans to pay for clearing and weeding of his farm land and to buy cassava seedlings. He believes the business will provide the best yield because he already has good skills and there is a ready demand for his farm produce.

He says his activity will help the community since he will supply healthy cassava which is good for human consumption at affordable prices. With the profit he acquires from the loan, he will reinvest some into his farm so as to expand his business and also pay his children’s school fees.

He prefers getting a loan from GHAPE because the repayment period is moderate, interest rates are low with no collateral.


This loan is special because:

It is coupled with multi-faceted trainings to support the poorest in Cameroon.
