Resty's story

Resty lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with five children and none of them goes to school. She takes care of additional family members (her grand-children). She sells charcoal from home on a retail basis. She has been in this business for the last 2 years. She works seven days a week.

Resty has requested a loan of Uganda shillings 900,000 from MCDT – SACCO to buy bags of charcoal. Her major business challenges are transportation and seasonality. Her goals and aspirations are to buy a truck to transport bags of charcoal from villages to the market. She lives in her own house and the family has no access to electricity or piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees, food, and medical bills.
