Margaret Nabachwa 's Group's story

Margaret is 40 years of age and married with 8 children, aged between 7 and 22. All her children go to school. She owns a five-roomed house where she lives with ten people and takes care of additional family members (orphans of her late sister). She has access to electricity and piped water at home. The family gets two meals a day.

Margaret sells charcoal in Kisaasi market in one of the city suburbs and that is how she earns a living. She rents her stall at 25,000 /= a month and receives about 20 customers a day. Margaret doesn’t incur any transport cost as she buys from her place of work and works seven days a week. She has done this business for 6 years now and prior to this she had a poultry farm at her home, but because of cocidiosis she lost all her chickens

This is her 8th loan ever since she joined MCDT; she has been with MCDT for 4 years, working with the same group mates for 1 and a 1/2 years. Margaret wants to use this loan partly to buy more sacks of charcoal and also to pay school fees for her children who are at a higher level. Margaret hopes to build a house from her savings and also own a permanent place for her business.
