Agwa's story

E. was born in1939; she is one of three wives married to a polygamist who passed away. She is a mother of five children, three below 15 years old. Her only daughter, who was married, died after a protracted illness, leaving behind three children that E. now care for. E. is not educated and due to poverty, hardship, and the death of her husband, she struggles to educate and clothe her children, pay hospital bills or even provide them three square meals a day. E. joined GHAPE three years ago and has successfully repaid two loans, both of which she invested in buying goats and pigs and farming of cassava. The profit from these loans has helped to pay school fees and hospital bills and increased the size of her farm. E. requests a loan to increase the size of her business by buying more pigs and goats and farming more cassava. Her business is going to succeed because there is a ready market for the animals and cassava. Due to her experience in this business, she is well known in her community for raising healthy animals and has a lot of customers who come from far and near. She plans to repay this loan in 18 months and the first installment repayment begins four months after disbursement.
