Theresia's story

Theresia is married with seven children. She lives in Mile 90, Northwest Region of Cameroon. She lives with her family in a three room house. Theresia has had to overcome some challenges in life such as ill health, difficulties paying school fees for her children and inadequate business capital.

This will be Theresia's fifth time to receive a loan from GHAPE. She has been a member since 2005. She has been quite successful in the past with her off-license business due to the high demand for the product. She plans to use her loan to buy and sell drinks and to carry out crop cultivation.

Part of her profits from this loan will be used to take care of her children, buy necessities for the family and give them good medication whenever they are sick. Part will be ploughed back into the business. Theresia plans to buy more crates, tables and glasses to expand the size of the bar. This activity will help to create a short relaxing arena for the community.
