Comfort Mah's story

She is a single mother with five children and they live in Mbengwi, Momo Division of the North West region of Cameroon. Being a single mother, she has faced many difficulties in life which include inadequate funds to take care of her children including providing them with medication, adequate education and other necessities of life.

Since she joined GHAPE in the year 1998, her life has become a success story. She can now be proud of educating her children, having a poultry farm to call her own, and she is also engaged in gardening. She has taken out and repaid her loans 14 times and says, if given the new loan, she will expand her business, add more chicks to her poultry farm and also do a table business. She holds the positive view that her business will succeed because of her longevity in the business. She has attended seminars on poultry farming and says the community will have quality products at low prices from her business. Her products will be available to them at all times. Also, she will give credit to trustworthy customers.

With the profit from her business, she will educate her children, provide medication for her family, add a room to her compound and also engage in the production of fruits like watermelon, pineapple, lime and lemon. She prefers GHAPE loans because of the low interest rate, convenient repayment intervals, availability of a loan when in demand, and the education of members before the loans are disbursed.
