Ngwa's story

Ngwa is married and has seven children and they live in a five-bedroom apartment in the Bamenda Mezam division of the northwest region of Cameroon.

She has faced many challenges in life including inadequate capital to start up and maintain a business, the temporary madness of her child due to a brain disorder, the death of some family members, and poverty in her family thus limiting her ability to better sponsor her children in school.

With the loan requested she will buy Irish potatoes, gari (a grain made from cassava), beans, corn and also do farming. She holds a strong positive view of her business succeeding because she has been doing it for a long time and with her effort and hard work she is determine to succeed. She has regular customers who buy from her, and from this business, the community will have regular supply of food at all times.

With the profit from the loan, she will cater for her children's education, plough back profits for expansion and also diversify her business activity. She prefers GHAPE loans because of the gradual installment payment, encouragement to save and low interest rates on loans.
