Anna is married with six children. She lives in Ntambessi, Cameroon. She lives with her entire family in a three-bedroom house. She has overcome difficulties like her daughter's sickness, which was for four years, difficulties in paying her rent, and she went as far as cooking with no cooking oil.

This will be the 7th time Anna is benefiting from a loan from GHAPE. Anna has been in GHAPE since August 2002 and has been very successful in past businesses. She uses her house for the business and this keeps her from paying rent elsewhere.

Anna plans to buy firewood, decoration materials and to pay for transportation. She says that this business will help the community in that they will get firewood very cheap from her.

She intends to use the proceeds of this business to pay her children's school fees, buy some basic needs for the family, and save some with the credit union.
