A loan helped to buy firewood for burning bricks to sell and generate income.


Mary's story

Mary is a single woman who solely takes care of her three offspring. She was a housewife before separating from her husband. The mischief of separating from her husband opened her eyes to look for what to do, since she had to sustain her remaining family. Mary moved office to office in search of employment but all in vain. This, she dreaded and later thought of starting her own business. However, she didn't succeed since she didn't have any savings.

With the available free land in her residential area she started making bricks from soil, then dried and burnt them later for sale. This opened her eyes as she became sustainable. The sustainability outcome pushed her to work more than ever so that her family's standards of living could improve.

She currently has a lot of piled up bricks awaiting burning yet she is short of funds to buy firewood. She is thereby seeking a credit facility to buy firewood to burn the piled up bricks and sell them to generate income. This will help her improve her standards of living and also sustain her children with all their necessities.
