Aline Silviane's story

Aline is a young, 30-year-old woman from Cameroon. She is single, and has two children aged two and a half. Her younger sister, who is 22, is also under her care.

Aline works in a local market selling hygienic drinks and water. She also sells second-hand clothing. She plans to use her loan to buy a freezer to better preserve her drinks, and also to buy clothing. Part of her additional profits will be used to expand her business, with the other part being used to provide for her family. In the future, she wants to build a house.
