Bonghaseh is married with no children. He lives in a one-bedroom house in Bamenda in the Northwest Region of Cameroon. He has faced so many challenges in life, among which are inadequate finances to carry out his business, the death of his mother and his elder brother’s son who was living with him, loss of property due to theft, unemployment, poverty in his family and the sickness of his wife.

With this loan he requested, he will repair his motorbike by buying a new battery, two new tires, an engine, side covers and a cylinder. With this activity, the business will succeed because he has been suffering for a while now because of rampant failure of his bike since all the parts are worn out. After buying these parts, the machine will work without problems; thus, he will carry many passengers. With this business activity, the community will benefit from easy movement since he will transport them to their various destinations at cheaper rates, and also drop students at schools.

With the profit from the loan, he will open a small provision store for his wife in his neighborhood and also save against further depression of the bike. He prefers GHAPE loans because of the low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals.
