Sirri is a widow and a mother of three children. She lives in a five-bedroom apartment in Bamenda, North West Province of Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life including inadequate finances to start up a business of her own and meet her family's needs, plus sickness and death of family members.
With this new loan requested, Sirri will buy piglets and feed for them and supplies for akra, a dish made of fried banana and cassava. Sirri holds a positive view of this business succeeding because she has been doing it for a long time and has regular customers who buy her akra early in the morning and the demand for pigs is high. In addition to that, the waste from pigs is used on the farm to get a high yield. With this business activity, the community will benefit from pig waste (manure) which will be used for farming, cassava from the farm as food, and her akra consumed mostly by school children.
With the profit from this loan, she will cater to her family's needs, ensure her children's education, expand her business and also save some money to undertake a bigger business investment. She prefers loans form GHAPE because of low interest rates, convenient repayment schedules and also the members are trained on marketing and management skills before the loans are disbursed. Plus, the social needs of members are met at GHAPE.
