She has been selling charcoal in the market at retail for eight years, working six days a week. She does not have any additional income.
Nulu has requested a loan of UShs 900,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to buy more sacks of charcoal for sale. Her challenges include transportation and seasonality. Her dream is to buy a vehicle and stop hiring one for transportation and also to educate her children up to university. She joined MCDT because services are taken to clients` localities. She stays in a rented house with access to electricity but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
