Mrs. Aslima T. has worked since 1999 selling prepared foods in the market of Leon Station. She prepares her food products and later distributes them in different locations in the market. She also delivers her products to some clients, while others arrive at her sales stall to buy the products as "take-away".

Aslima is a single mother supporting three adolescent children. She is the sole provider in the family. From time to time, she decides to apply for a loan from Ceprodel. Not only has Ceprodel never rejected her loan applications, but they have provided her with the capital to buy her raw materials and cover her household expenses.
