Help Esther Grow Her Business

A microproject by Reach Out Cameroon (REO)


Esther lost her mother at a very tender age, raised alone by her father. She loved school but her father quickly stopped paying for her fees. At 28, she is a mother of four: Stanford (12), Wisdom (7), Faith (5) and Emmanuel (2). She does not have a house of her own, her boyfriend and children are sharing a house with others. She is taking care of 4 children and 2 brothers and wants to access Birth Control, but can't afford it. You can help her become financially stable

Esther's boyfriend has tried different business and jobs, with little success. Every year the same question comes up, will the children be able to go to school? From a problematic family she is happy to have found some peace and a stable partner, but economic problems keep coming up. Esther forced herself to take control of their economic situation. She is now the only source of income of the family with the profits she makes buying and selling clothes.


Esther saw what others were doing and started buying and selling clothes in local markets. Today, all her days but Sundays are occupied in one market or the other and her business capital has grown to give her a stable stream of profits and make her family better. Yet, so many needs around her stop her from growing the business more, she is at the mercy of any family problem that will send her and the people she takes care of back to extreme poverty. She needs a capital push. You can provide it.

Long-Term Impact

With your donation, she will be able to travel to Douala (the economic Capital) and buy a bigger batch of clothes from a cheaper supplier, selling at a better profit. After monitoring her situation, we will provide a second grant 6 months after to consolidate her position. If enough money is raised you will also provide for Birth Control for her, as well as school needs for her 4 children. Our team will meet regularly with her and address possible threats to prevent failures in the business.
