Rose is the leader of a group of 4 members. She is 36 years old, married, and has two children, aged 13 and 16. Both her children go to school. She resides in a rented three-roomed house, where she is staying with five people. Rose doesn’t have to take care of any additional family members. There is electricity but no piped water at her home. The family gets three meals a day. She resides and works in a semi-urban area, in the outskirts of Kampala. Rose sells charcoal at Ndeeba market, in one of Kampala suburbs. She sells to an average of 20 people a day, all categories of people. She works seven days a week. She doesn’t incur any transport costs as she buys from her place of work from suppliers who get the charcoal from villages. Her major monthly expenses include medication, rent for business and feeding the family. She has been in this business for the last seven years. Rose has been with MCDT for over six years and now requesting her twelfth loan, working with the same group mates. She wants to use this loan to buy more charcoal.
