Doh's story

P. is married to two wives and has seven children, four of whom are under the age of fifteen. He lives in Kobenyang, Momo Division, in the northwest region of Cameroon. As a very hard-working guy. He has faced some major challenges in life, such as inadequate funds to pay for his children's education, ill health, and death of relatives. In 2008, he saw GHAPE as a source of relief and became a member. He has received and repaid loans from GHAPE twice and his previous repayments were encouraging.

With the loan he is requesting now, he plans to invest in his farm. With the profit from the loan, he will pay for his children's education, clothe them, and give them good food and good medication whenever they are sick.

He prefers to receive loan from GHAPE, rather than other financial institutions, because of the training GHAPE offers and because proper follow-up is done to ensure the loan is properly managed.
