Neba's story

She is married and blessed with four children, two of them below the age of 15. The family lives in a three-room apartment in Bamenda, Mezam Division, North West region of Cameroon. She has encountered many challenges in life, including the death of her brother which forced her to stop school at a tender age, illness of her children, too little money to provide square meals to her children and to provide education for her children.

With the new loan, she plans to purchase foodstuffs, like beans, rice, oil, Irish potatoes and yellow yams, and she will pay for the transportation of these foodstuffs from the bush market to her place of business. She believes that her business will succeed, because of her longevity in the business, the high demand for foods such as beans and yams in the community, her good business location, and the regular customers who buy foods from her for resale and for restaurant use. The community will benefit, because they will not have to go a long distance to buy foodstuffs.

The profits will help her to improve the housing conditions of her family, to provide better education for the children, and to expand her business. She prefers a loan from GHAPE, because of the convenient repayment period, the low interest, and the social education they provide.
