A loan of $200 helped to buy sewing materials, chicks and seedlings.


Benu's story

Benu is married with eight children. They live in a five-bedroom house in Bamenda, in the Mezam Division of the northwest region of Cameroon.

Benu has faced many challenges in life, among them sickness in her family, the poor health of her younger brother and the death of her mother after a prolonged illness, which led to unnecessary expenditures on drugs and other hospital expenses.

The loan she has requested will be used to buy sewing materials, chicks and seedlings for her gardening business. She believes her ventures will succeed. Her tailoring workshop is situated in a good location, because it is both highly populated and located beside a school. People will bring school uniforms to her for sewing. Since she is a professional, many people will bring dresses to her as well. She also has a good knowledge of gardening and poultry farming. With these activities, the community will have a regular supply of her products at greatly reduced prices.

The profits from the loan will be used to expand her business, help the needy in her community and educate her children. She prefers loans from Grounded and Holistic Approach for People’s Empowerment because of the organization’s low interest rates and good repayment intervals.
