Rose's story

Rose N. lives in the Ndeeba neighborhood in the city of Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has two children, both of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (a sister and a brother).

Rose has a business selling charcoal. She has been in this business for 8 years, and she works 6 days out of every week. Rose sells her products at the market, both wholesale and retail. Rose has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bags of charcoal. She also generates additional income through part-time teaching.

The main business challenges for Rose include transportation and the rainy season. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start selling wholesale only and also to educate her children up to university. Rose lives in a home that she rents; she has access to electricity but doesn't have access to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include paying utility bills, feeding the family, rent and school fees.
