Ninehele's story

Ninehele was born in 1962; she is married and a mother of four children. She lives in Bamenda Northwest region of Cameroon. Due to so many family problems beyond her control, she got married to a polygamist with many children and single handedly took care of her own children, this includes buying and providing for her children's needs both in school and at home. She is also responsible for paying for hospital bills and other bills of the house. Motivated by all these circumstances, she became a member of GHAPE in 1998 and has successfully managed and repaid loans nine times. The profit from these loans has helped her enormously in taking care of the above-mentioned responsibilities. If given a loan she intends to buy Irish potato, yam, and corn seeds. She also intends to continue with her cultivation of cassava. Her business is going to succeed because she has been doing it for close to 20 years. She owns a vast piece of farmland and has prior experience in farming of the above-mentioned crops. She intends to use the profit from this loan to educate her children, pay for hospital bills, and for the basic needs of the family.
