A loan of $300 helped to buy fowls, piglets, and feed.


Cheo's story

He is married with seven children and they all live in a five-bedroom house in Bafut Mezam Division of the North West Region of Cameroon. He has faced many challenges in life, amongst which are the death of his daughter’s twin children after spending much money in the hospital. His compound (house) collapsed while he was inside and fell on his left leg which led to him being hospitalized for over a year. Also, the death of his insane sister who was killed by a car on the road, and the death of his mother after a brief illness.

The new loan requested will be used to buy piglets, chicks, and feed for the chicks. He is positive the business will succeed because he has experience, and he will buy a good breed of piglets and chicks and also buy a well mixed feed for their feeding. With this activity the community will benefit from the droppings from the animals as manure for the fertilization of their farms thus leading to improved yields.

The profit from the loan will be used for feeding his family, educating his children, expansion of the business by buying more piglets and chicks, and also for future investment. GHAPE loans are preferable to him because of low interest rates and a well-structured repayment interval.
