Marie Ngwen's story

Marie Ngwen is married and has seven children. The family lives in a five bedroom apartment in Bamenda Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life, including sickness of family members, death, inadequate money to educate her children and inadequate money to expand her business.She joined GHAPE in 2008 and has taken out and repaid her loans four times. She says if given the new loan as requested, she will buy shoes, inner wears for both men and women, men's socks and ladies' bags. She believes strongly that her business will succeed because she has longevity in the business, she has a good business site and she has regular customers who buy from her shop. She says with this boost in business activity, the community will have a supply of good quality dresses, shoes and handbags and also benefit from moderate prices. With the profit from the loan, she will expand the business, educate her children, add to her savings in GHAPE and increase the standard of living in her house. She says GHAPE loans are preferable because of low interest rates, training on management before loan disbursement and convenient repayment intervals.
