Che's story

She is married and has six children, two of them below the age of fifteen. They both live in a four-room apartment house in Bamenda, in the northwest region of Cameroon.
She has encountered some challenges in life: her mother's sickness; an accident that almost took away her life; the death of her brother, an incident that she hates thinking of; and she was attacked by armed robbers. In addition to all of these problems, she also faces the problem of inadequate capital to start up a business.

Given a loan, she plans to buy fuel wood, pay labor for splitting, and invest part in dressmaking. She knows this activity will succeed because she has been doing this business for a very long period, and her community will provide a ready market for her products and more still. She has a large market due to the increasing population and increasing demand for her products. This activity will help the community in that they will have quality dresses
at affordable prices.

She plans to use the profits generated from this activity to pay the fees for her children in school and also to cater for their basic needs, such as hospital bills.
