Comfort
Comfort is married with six children. All are older than fifteen years old. Comfort lives with her six children in a ten-room apartment in Bamenda, in the North West region of Cameroon. Comfort encountered some challenges in her lifetime: sickness, the death of her daughter, the death of her grandchild, and the death of her parents.

With the loan, Comfort plans to buy two bags of corn, one bag of garri, buckets of kumkum (dried, graded cassava), a bag of onions, two cartons of fish, tomatoes, magi, and salt for retail. She believes this activity will succeed because of her longevity in this activity and also she has so many customers. Her business site is located in a strategic place where many people pass by. The high demand for her commodities in the community is a reason for the success of the activity. The community will benefit in that many people prefer to buy directly from the farm at cheaper prices.

With the profit, she plans to provide better education, health care for the family and expand her business. She prefers a loan from GHAPE because of the convenient repayment period, low interest and the social education they provide.
