Sarah's story

Sarah lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has two children, both of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (sisters and brother). Sarah has a business selling charcoal. She has been in this business for 10 years and she works six days out of every week. Sarah sells her products from home, by means of wholesale. She has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy bags of charcoal. She also generates additional income through rental houses.

The main business challenges for Sarah include transportation and seasonality. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to own a delivery van for easier transportation and also to build more houses for renting. Sarah lives in a home that she owns; she has access to electricity and has access to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include feeding the family and school fees.
