Fienbi is married with six children. The family lives in a three bedroom apartment house in Bamenda in the Northwest Province of Cameroon. Fienbi has faced many challenges in life, including sickness in her family and the deaths of family members, particularly her father and brother, and of friends. The costs of medicines for the sick and funeral costs have left her with inadequate capital to run her business.

With the loan requested, Fienbi will expand her production of yogurt by buying more milk and sugar. She will also buy food items for her shop like beans, maize, palm oil, groundnuts, and rice. She is very positive that her business will succeed because she has been doing it for a long time and is knowledgeable about the business. She has a good business location and regular customers who buy from her shop. At times, she also delivers her yogurt to schools and sells to students. Fienbi's business provides food stuffs to her community at a moderate price and allows them to obtain food without traveling long distances.

With the profit from the loan, Fienbi will expand her business, help the needy in the community, and pay for her children's medication, feeding, and education expenses. She prefers GHAPE loans because of low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals
