A loan of $650 helped to buy more bags of charcoal.

Hadjah's story

Hadjah lives in the Makerere 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 (her old parents). Hadjah has a business of selling charcoal. She has been in this business for seven years and she works seven days out of every week. She sells her products at the market, by means of retail.

Hadjah has requested a loan of 1,500,000 UGX from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bags of charcoal. She generates additional income through rental rooms. Her main business challenges include transportation and the rainy season, which hinders her customers from reaching her.

Her goals and aspirations for her business are to own a delivery van and to build more rental rooms. She lives in a home that she owns where she has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
