Pamela Neh Akoso
Given a loan of $600, she plans to buy flour, sugar, oil, yeast, and cups to enhance her “achumbu” (convenient road side restaurant) activity. The loan will also pay for labor to clear her farm and sticks to repair her existing pig fence. Her immediate goal is to continuously provide for her children while rendering the needed achumbu services to her community.
She plans to repay the loan in 18 months. The first installment will be four months from the date of disbursement of the loan.
