Nkwain's story

She is married and blessed with four children, all of them above the age of fifteen. They all live in a four-room apartment house in Bamenda in the northwest region of Cameroon.

She has faced some challenges in life, such as sickness and a fire that almost resulted in her death. Also, she once lost her money. In addition to all of these problems, she also faces the problem of having no capital to start up a business.

With this loan, she plans to buy fuel wood, potatoes, and bananas for her chips, and tins of oil for the frying of the chips. She believes this activity will succeed because she has been doing this business for a very long period, and the community will provide a ready market for her products and more still. She has a large market due to the ever increasing population and demand for her products. This activity will help the community in that they will have quality wood and chips at good moderate 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.
