A loan of $600 helped trading and farming.


Pamela Neh Akoso's story

Born in 1975, Pamela is a single mother of two children named Solange and Blaise. She perseveres in life although her boyfriend, who is the father of her kids, disappointed her. She took out her first loan in 2003, the same year she had her second baby. This is her fourth time borrowing. With her three previous loans she provided her community with fast-food services and fresh raw food from her farm. She is proud of having bought some kitchen utensils and paid her children’s fees.

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.
