A loan of $200 helped to buy cocoyams (taro), palm oil, maggi and other spices, and soap for her restaurant.


Mbabe's story

Mbabe is married and has six children. They live in a three-bedroom house in the Bamenda Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon.
She has faced many challenges in life, which include inadequate finance to educate her children, so the children are frequently driven out of school for lack of school fees, basic text books, and other items like pens, pencils and books.
With the new loan she has requested, she will expand her business by buying more food items like cocoyams (taro), palm oil, tomatoes, maggi and other spices to help her carry out the proper operation of her restaurant. She strongly believes that her business will succeed, because of her longevity and experience in the business, as well as high demand in the locality. She says her business will benefit the community by providing a regular supply of food at moderate prices, and because food is supplied for ceremonial activities like weddings, birthday parties and death memorials at reduced prices.
She will plough back the profit from the loan into the business, provide some basic items for her children’s education, and add more rooms to her house. She prefers GHAPE loans because of the low interest rates, because members are educated on loan management before the loans are disbursed, and because the repayment terms are affordable.
