Summary

Nicoline is a young woman who has been internally displaced by the civil war in Anglophone Cameroon. In 2019, she attended a vocational training workshop and was the best among all participants. However, she has been unable to set up her own shop because she does not have any savings and has 4 children to feed. This project aims to give her a set of household support and business grants that will give her the breathing room necessary to put her talent to work and gradually escape poverty.
