Regina's story

Regina is 36 years of age. She lives in her own two-room house where she currently lives with six people. She has three meals a day. Her three greatest expenses in a month are paying electricity bills.

Regina has a retail shop and she works seven days a week. She serves about thirty customers a day. She has done this for business for fifteen years now. She also runs a pay phone that brings in some side income for her family. Her main challenge is that there are many retail shops that sell the same products as she does.

She has been with MCDT for 5 years now and so far she has taken 12 loans. She has worked with her group for five years now. She will use this loan to pay tuition for her children and also to increase her stock.
