A loan of $775 helped to buy more bags of charcoal.


Grace's story

Grace is married with four children, but only three of her children go to school. She is also responsible for two additional family members, her sister and brother. She has owned and managed a business selling charcoal for the last ten years. Grace is a hard worker, she works seven days a week and sells to both retail and wholesale customers. Her major business challenges include transportation, seasonality and theft. Grace lives in her own house with her family, and they have electricity but no piped water. Her monthly expenses includes medication, feeding the family and utility bills.

Grace has applied for a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bags of charcoal. She would love to own a delivery van to help with transporting her charcoal, and to focus on selling to wholesale clients only.
