Winnie's story

Winnie lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has 2 children, both of whom are in school. Winnie has a charcoal selling business. She has been in this business for over 10 years and she works 6 days a week. Winnie sells her products wholesale in a shop. She has requested a loan of 400000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO which she will use to buy more bags of charcoal.

The main business challenges for Winnie include seasonality and ever increasing price of charcoal. Her goals are to own a delivery van and to build her own house. Winnie lives in a home that she rents; she doesn't have access to electricity and doesn't have access to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent and school fees.
