Rose's story

Rose is widowed with six children who all go to school. She does not take care of any additional family members. For the past five years, she has run a business selling charcoal and she sells both retail and wholesale. Rose generates additional income by selling used clothing and she works seven days a week from home. Her major business challenges include thieves and the rainy season, which hinders her customers. Rose lives in a home that she owns and has access to electricity and running water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and utility bills.

Rose is requesting a 500,000 UGX loan from MCDTSACCO to buy more bags of charcoal. She aspires to grow her business so that she can become a wholesaler and she wants to educate her children through university.
