Julie's story

Born in 1956, Julie S. is married to a polygamist and is the mother of seven children. The problems usually associated with polygamous families led to her mal treatment. She has to work very hard to fend for herself and her children. Motivated by this, she became a GHAPE member in 1998. Before receiving her first loan she was trained in business management, marketing techniques and credit discipline. Since 1998, she has been able to invest and repay loans up to $1000 with which she raised money to buy food and to pay school fees and apprentice fees for her children.

Given a loan of $1200, she plans to buy a motor bike and do transportation business. The motor bike will be driven by her son who has experience in the motor bike business. She believes the business will be lucrative as she has been trained by GHAPE in business skills and it is a faster source of transportation especially on poor roads. With this, she will raise money to educate her children in formal and vocational schools. She plans to pay her loan in 24 months. First loan repayment installment shall be made on the fourth month from the date of disbursement of the loan.
