A loan of $850 helped a member to buy charcoal for resale.


Hadjah Muwanga‘S Group's story

Hadjah is 45 years of age, married, and has two children aged 10 and 27 years. She owns a four-roomed house where she is staying with twelve people and doesn’t take care of any additional family members. She has access to electricity and piped water at home. The family gets three meals a day.


Hadjah sells charcoal in Bwaise and doesn’t incur any extra transport cost as she buys from her place of work and that is how she earns her living. Her monthly expenses include licence and school fees for her children. Hadjah sells to all categories of people and works six days week. She has done this business for four months now and before joining the charcoal business she used to fry eatables.


This is her tenth loan since she joined MCDT five years ago, working with the same group-mates. Hadjah wants to use this loan to buy more charcoal for resale. She would like to see her business grow bigger and wants to own permanent business premises.
