Shetu's story

She was born in 1978 and she is a single mother with three children. She lives in Bamenda in the northwest region of Cameroon with her three children.

She has encountered a good number of challenges in her life, which include an early unsuccessful marriage that led to a divorce. She also dropped out of school because there was no money to continue paying her school fees. Ill health has also been a serious problem in her family, even to the extent of her losing family members. Notwithstanding the above-mentioned difficulties, she also suffers from inadequate capital to start and run a small business of her own, which would enable her to provide her children’s school fees, rent, bills and other items. With this loan, she intends to buy a deep refrigerator, different varieties of fish, potatoes, plantain and other small items. Her activity will assist her community, provide them with quality roasted fish and a relaxation corner after a tedious working day.

With the proceeds from this loan, she will educate her children, pay for her children’s hospital bills, plow back her profits, expand her business and increase her savings for difficult days. She prefers a loan from GHAPE because of the gradual installment payment and the low interest rate.
