With this new loan she has requested, she plans to increase her scale of cocoa production by buying more improved seedlings and paying laborers to clear and farm the land. She holds a positive view of the business succeeding because she has experience in the field. She plans to buy improved seedlings and she has regular customers who buy her produce. With this loan activity, the community will have access to enjoy cocoa-related products like chocolate, biscuit, sweets and Ovaltine since her produce will serve as raw materials to the companies producing these products.
With the profit from this loan she will better her children's education, expand her business, save some to cater for ill health, and also construct a house for her family. She prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals, and the training offered at GHAPE.
