Ivodia's story

Ivodia is a widow and a mother of one child. She lives with her children in a three-bedroom apartment in Bamenda, in the North West Region of Cameroon. Ivodia has faced some life challenges including the death of her father and mother. She has also been sick for a long time and was attacked by thieves in her house. Ivodia’s major problem is inadequate capital to manage her business. She prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals.

Ivodia is requesting a loan to buy a grinding mill to help her grind koki beans (black-eyed peas) in her house and also commercially. She will also use her loan to buy a bag of koki beans, two containers of vegetable oil, and to buy seedlings and pay for farm labor. Ivodia has a positive view that her business will succeed. She has been doing it for a long time and has good experience. Her business is well-located and she has a good approach that encourages her customers to buy regularly. She hopes her loan will increase her business activity and that the community will have to buy her products that she will be able to sell at cheaper prices. Ivodia will use the profit from her loan to pay her child’s school fees, feed her family, provide medication for her family, and pay her bills.
