Edwige Laure's story

Edwige is a young woman of 39 years. She is single and has three children whose ages range from 10 to 5 years old. They already all attend school.

For the last two years she has been running a doughnut manufacturing business in a market in Yaounde. In her manufacturing plant she has a dough kneading machine and she is requesting a loan to buy a dough rolling machine in order to maximize her production and minimize the costs. She currently has sellers who are paid on commission and deliver to shops in the neighborhood.

In the future, she would like to make deliveries in the town’s bakeries where the demand is higher.
