Hadjah is married with eight children. Only three of her children go to school and the rest of her children are working. Hadjah owns a bar, selling all types of beer and local gin. She wants to use this loan to buy more jerrycans of local gin and crates of beer. She buys crates of beer from delivery vans and local gin from Mengo Kisenyi.
She has been in this business for 12 years and with MCDT (a Kiva partner) for 10 years. Hadjah works six days a week. Her business challenge is the transportation of jerrycans of local brew from Kisenyi to her business in Mengo.
She is aspiring to sell on a wholesale basis only. Hadjah joined MCDT because of the low interest charged.
