Ngwe Emilia
Ngwe Emilia is married and has six children, three of them below the age of 15. They live in a three-room apartment house in Bamenda in the northwest region of Cameroon.

She has encountered challenges in life including the sickness of her mother, an accident that almost took away her life, the death of her brother -- an incident that she hates thinking of -- and also she was attacked by arm robbers. Among all of these problems, she also faces a problem of inadequate capital to start up a business.

Given a loan, she plans to buy three-week-old chicks and fowl feed. She knows this activity will succeed because she has been doing it 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 increasing numbers in the population and increasing demand for her products. This activity will help the community in that they will have quality fowls at affordable prices.

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