Kwekulakulanya Group's story

Harriet is 34 years old and a single mother of an 11-year-old child, who goes to school.

She started a charcoal business six years ago, after her husband had abandoned her and he did not want to cater for the family. As a mother, she would not sit back and look at her child’s future getting spoiled without an education and all the basic needs, therefore, she saved some money to start up the business.

Because of her hard work, Harriet has managed to save her little profit and has bought a piece of land where she has started construction of a small, permanent, residential house for herself and her child. With the loan that she will be given, she will be able to buy construction materials for the same purpose.

Harriet has dreams of expanding her business, educating her child, and getting her own home. Harriet’s challenge is having limited capital for her business. Harriet’s neighbors and workmates, when approached, described her as a courageous, hard-working, and cooperative lady in society. She is confident that, with the Ugafode loan, her dreams will soon be realized.
