Anwi's story

Anwi is married with one child and they live in Nitop One, a quarter in Bamenda Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon and do her business at the food market Bamenda where many people go to get their food items . The main challenges she has faced in life include ill health in her family, poverty and not being able to provide basic necessities for her family: all these things she hates thinking about. Anwi joined GHAPE in the year 2000 and has taken out and successfully repaid her loans 10 times. With this new loan she will buy foodstuffs like beans, palm oil, corn, groundnuts and salt for resale. To make further profit and as an addition to her business, she will buy and rear piglets and chicks for resale. She thinks her business will succeed because of its longevity. She also has a good business site and the community will benefit from this activity from the animal droppings and also the supply of foodstuff at all times. The profit from the loan will be used for her child's education, the provision of family needs and to also expand her business. Anwi says that GHAPE loans are preferable because of the low interest with a convenient repayment time.
