A loan of $2,575 helped a member the purchase of more bags of charcoal for resell.

Wanyange Tusubiira Womens Group-Jinja's story

For three and a half years, 41 year old Harriet W. has operated her charcoal business in Wanyange-Jinja. This business combined with her commercial motorcycle business has been providing all the financial ways and means on which she and her family have been surviving. Being that she is widowed, living only by her wits was unacceptable. Harriet originally started work in a trade reserved for men and that is timber cutting.

Today, this mother of four school aged children earns 50,000 shillings a week with her business. With proceeds from this loan, she says she wants to purchase more bags of charcoal that she will later resell.
