Tapeku's story

Tapeku is married and has three children, with one below the age of 15 years. The entire family lives in a three-room apartment house at Ntamulung, Bamenda, in the northwest region of Cameroon.

Lots of problems have been faced by this woman, including the lack of adequate startup financing and less means to provide better health care for her children and a proper education with good moral upbringing. This situation was further compounded by the death of her father, elder sister and father-in-law. However, she intends to use this loan to purchase in bulk rice, beans and other foodstuff items, and to keep more fowls in her poultry business.

She believes she will succeed in doing this business because of the increased demand for foodstuff products in the community, Also, she has been in the business for over 10 years. This business will help the community in that it improves the quantity and quality of foodstuffs the community can afford; customers will not have to go long distances to buy food; and time will be saved. The gain from this business will help her to expand the foodstuff sales and expand the poultry activity. Also, the profit will be used to pay for the children's needs and to pay for the medication of the family.
