She has faced many challenges in life, such as the death of a cousin, inadequate capital to start up a business, and the inability to afford education for the family. She intends to use this loan to increase her poultry farming activity by buying more birds, feeders, and feed. She will also buy koki beans and oil for the cooking of koki, and part of the loan will be use to purchase piglets.
This activity will help the community by providing quality poultry to the public; it will also enable the population to enjoy good quality koki and pork meat. She believes the business will succeed because of the high demand for fowl and ever-increasing demand for koki in the community. Also her longevity in the above activity is a reason for her to believe that the business will succeed.
With the profit from the loan she will sponsor the children in school, increase her business, and pay for the healthcare of the family. Generally the living standards of the family will be increased. She prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rate, education before loan disbursement, and also the loans given by GHAPE are paid conveniently.
