Alang is married with seven children, all above the age of 15. She and her husband live in a five-room apartment in Bamenda, Northwest Region of Cameroon. She has faced so many challenges in life which include difficulties faced in her marital life, the death of both parents, sickness of family members, the sudden death of friends and relatives, insufficient finances to successfully manage her business, and the inability to educate her children.

Alang has taken and successfully repaid her loans three times and she says that with this new, requested loan, she will buy plastic paper in bulk and store it in her business site. Also, part of the loan will be invested in her clothing business. Alang will buy clothes in town markets and retail them in local markets around the region.

She believes this business will be successful because she has been involved in this line of business for a long time and has experience in the business. She is very sure to obtain maximum profit from this business. With this business activity, the community will have a regular source of plastic paper of all types. Also, the community will have a good supply of clothing because people will not go a long distance to buy clothes, both for themselves and their children, at moderate price.

With the profit from this loan, Alang will educate her children, provide three square meals to her family, cater for her children's medication, and provide other necessities to her family. She prefers Grounded and Holistic Approach for People's Empowerment (GHAPE) loans because of low interest rates and convenient repayment intervals, and the training offered at GHAPE. Also, the social talks at GHAPE meetings are of interest to her.
