Bertha Carmelina's story

Bertha Carmelina Toho is 45 years old and has two school age children. She works every day in order to pay for their school fees. Bertha sells food and snacks at the school in her community. She wakes up very early so that she can prepare different types of food. Bertha is extremely pleased because her business has grown considerably.

She is requesting a loan so that she can buy three bundles of firewood and food products used for preparing snacks. Bertha thanks God that she had the chance to become acquainted with FAPE because the organization has helped many people by granting loans. She hopes her loan request will be granted so that she can receive the support she needs.
