Ma B. is married to a polygamist. They are blessed with six children, all of whom go to school. Ma B. could not afford to study in school when she was younger, which has made life very difficult for her. Because of this, it is hard for her to work and assist her husband in caring for the family. Additionally, her children are unable to study freely in school because of the fees. They also cannot afford three square meals a day.

Ma B. was motivated to become a member of GHAPE by her husband, who became a GHAPE member in 2001. Since she joined, Ma B. has successfully borrowed and repaid loans six times. The profit from these loans has helped her to pay her children's school fees and provide some basic needs, like food, for the family.

Given a new loan, Ma B. plans to buy drugs, chemicals for the production of momo (which is used for washing dresses), and planting seeds. She knows her business is going to succeed because she has acquired some basic training in finance management and how to choose a good business from GHAPE. Also, she has been doing this business for several years.

She plans to pay her loan in 24 months. The first installment repayment shall be done on the fourth month from the date of disbursement.
