Richard's story

Richard is married with three children, and they live in a five bedroom apartment in Bamenda Mezam division of the North West Region of Cameroon. He has faced so many challenges in life, among which are inadequate finance to manage his business, death of family members, sickness in his family, and marital problems. He has taken, and successfully repaid, his loans twice, and says with this new loan requested, he will open a poultry farm where he will rear chicks, expand his piggery farm and add more materials like planks, nails in his carpentry workshop. He has a positive view of his business succeeding because he has undergone training in poultry and pig rearing, and he has been operating this carpentry workshop for many years. With this business activity, he will supply chicks and piglets to the community at lower rates. They will be used for ceremonial activities. With the profit from this business, he will cater for his children's basic needs, provide three square meals to his family, and make provision for his family's health care. He prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rates.
