A loan helped to buy metallic doors for her house.

Margreat's story

Margreat lives in Bundibugyo, Uganda, with five children, two of whom are her grandchildren. She is married and very hardworking. She is engaged in buying and selling cocoa as her major source of income. She gets additional income from selling bananas from her plantation. She started the cocoa business over 20 years ago and now believes that through trading and farming, her family is to have a better future. She is challenged by high transport and storage costs, but she wants to continue with the business so as to raise household income and school fees for the children.

Margreat has requested a loan to buy metallic doors for her house. She used the previous loan for buying iron sheets and timber and to pay for labor for roofing the same house.
