Anna is a widow with three children. None are below the age of fifteen. She lives in a three-room apartment house with her children in Alabukam-Bamenda in the North West region of Cameroon.

Anna encountered some challenges in her lifetime; sickness, the death of her daughter and mother, and also the fact that she is unable to take care of her grandchildren. Worst of all, she does not have adequate capital to carry out farming.

With the loan, Anna plans to buy seedlings, which include maize, beans, yams, cocoyams and groundnuts. She will use some of the loan to pay labour for clearing, hoeing, and buying a bag of fertilizer. She believes this farming activity will succeed because of her years of experience in the activity and because she has a ready market for her items. She also has a piece of land where she will carry out her farming activity.

The community will benefit since many people prefer to buy directly from the farm, at cheaper prices than at the market. With the fresh corn from her farm, Anna will sell some and roast some.

With the profit, Anna will provide better education and health care for the family and expand her farmland. She prefers a loan from GHAPE because of the convenient repayment period, low interest, and the social education they provide.
