Madina's story

Madina lives in Uganda. She is single and has five children, all of whom are in school.

Madina has a business of selling charcoal. She has been in this business for eight years, and she works seven days out of every week. She sells her products from home, by means of retail.

Madina has requested a loan from MCDT SACCO for 1,000,000 Ugandan Shillings, which she will use to buy more bags of charcoal. The main business challenges for Madina include transportation and the rainy season.

Her goals and aspirations for her business are to sell wholesale and also to own a delivery van to ease transportation. She also hopes to educate her children up to university.

Madina lives in a home that she rents. She has access to electricity, but not piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent, school fees, and feeding her family.
