A loan of $2,625 helped a member to purchase more stones for use in her quarry.


Stone Quarry Development Group's story

50 year old Alice, a happily married mother of 3, has been engaged in a stone quarry business for the past 18 years in Mukono. She says she began this business under the auspices of her husband. Stone quarrying is a business which involves a lot of elbow grease. For that reason, Alice employs sturdy and dynamic young men to do most of the work. She lays great store upon hard work and this philosophy has trickled down to her workers. She says this business generates profits totaling up to 180,000 shillings monthly. The purpose of this loan, she says, is to help her purchase more stones for usage at her quarry. Client demand has increased and the purchase of more stones will enable her to meet their demands.
