Ngang Catherine's story

Ngang Catherine is single and a mother of three children. They live in a three bedroom apartment house in Bamenda, Northwest Region, Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life, including the deaths of her mother and sister, sickness and the worst, being sent packing out of their family compound. Another challenge has been inadequate finances to start up a business of her own and to provide for her children's needs.

With this new loan requested, she will buy second hand dresses, groundnuts, yams and cassava seedlings for her farm. She is optimistic this business will succeed, because she has been doing it for a long time and has ready markets for the sale of her products. Also, she knows the type of dresses to buy and the right time to buy. In addition, she has regular customers that buy from her. The community will benefit from her regular supply of products.

With the profit from this loan, she will cater to her family's needs, ensure her children's education, build her house and register herself for various competitive examinations. She prefers loans from GHAPE because of the low interest rates, convenient repayment intervals and the fact that the members are trained on marketing and management skills before the loans are disbursed. In addition, the social needs of members are catered to at GHAPE.
