A loan of $1,575 helped a member to purchase more bags of charcoal to resell.


Hope Development Group's story

34 year old K. Mujibu is a charcoal salesman in Kisenyi, Kampala. The happily married father of 4 has been operating this business for the last 10 years, before which he was mostly doing odd jobs in and around Kampala. He says his weekly business profits are about 150,000 shillings, and adds that with this loan, he will purchase more bags of charcoal to resell. Mujibu also has a rental business that he oversees. Through the course of the years he says he has relied on one thing, which is hard work. This hard work ethic has sustained him this long, and he anticipates that if he keeps going with that tenacity, his further longevity will be guaranteed.
