Wasang is married with three children and they all live in a seven bed apartment house in Bafut Mezam Division of the Northwest Region of Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life, including sickness in her family, poverty, and the death of her husband, brothers and a sister who were very supportive to her in her day to day life, as well as hatred from her fellow women in the family.

With this new loan, she will buy hair treatment product, body lotion, body treatment and other products for her cosmetic shop. According to her, this business is bound to succeed because she plans to put in the best effort required for the business to grow from strength to strength and she will buy just the pressing needs needed by the community. From this business, the community will benefit from the availability of the items at all times. She will sell them at reduced prices at her neighbors' doorsteps so they won’t go to long distances in search of the items.

With the profit from this business, she will educate her children and insure that she can pay for their education. She will also provide three square meals to her family since she is the only breadwinner after her husband’s death. She prefers a GHAPE loan because of the low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals.
