Norah's story

Norah is widowed with six children, and four of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (grandsons). She has a business of selling charcoal and has been in this business for five years. She has applied for a loan of 1700000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bags of charcoal. She generates additional income from rental rooms. She sells both on wholesale and retail basis. Her major business challenges include seasonality and transportation of bags of charcoal. She aspires to own a delivery van to ease transportation, and also to buy more plots so as to build rental houses. She resides in her own house and the family has access to piped water and electricity. Her monthly expenses includes electricity and food.
