Magaret's story

Magaret is married and blessed with four children under age 15. She and her family live in a three-room apartment in Bamenda, which is in the northwest region of Cameroon.

Magaret has faced many challenges in life such as the death of her sister, illness and inadequate capital to start a business. With this loan, she intends to rent additional farm land, pay for cleaning and buy seedlings for potatoes and beans. Part of this loan will be used to buy cassava. This will help the community provide good quality food to the public. It will also enable the population to buy food without having to travel long distances. It will also provide employment for the women who work on the farms.

Magaret believes her business will succeed due to the high demand for food in the community. She has been farming for a long time and has a lot of experience.

With the profit from the loan, she will be able to send her children to school and pay for the family's health care. She prefers a loan from GHAPE because of the low interest rate. Also, the loans given by GHAPE are paid conveniently.
