Kwamuka Group's story

Maria is 42 years old and married to Robert, 53 years old. Together they have eight children who go to school. She runs a grocery store selling soap, sugar and biscuits, and is requesting this loan to order these items in large quantities to attract more customers in her village. She started her business to be able to pay school fees for her children and to accumulate money to start building a good iron-roofed house for her family. Maria has been involved in the business for one year and before she started, she was a farmer. She works from home and her children help with the daily operations when they have time. Her ambition is to use any profit generated to satisfy her family's basic needs and to pay school fees for the children. Maria hopes that the training she received on Business Management offered by the Microloan Foundation will help her to achieve what she needs from her grocery store. As a woman, she is self-reliant.
