Biruga Omututu Group

Uganda
Lyantonde, Uganda / Charcoal Sales

A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy charcoal for sell.


Biruga Omututu Group's story

Dinah, a married woman of four children, lives in the outskirts of Lyantonde town and sells charcoal in the town center. She began the business to meet the growing needs of her young family. The business was also cheap to begin, yet it was profitable since all the low income earners use charcoal to cook because gas and electricity are expensive.

She wants the loan to increase her stock of charcoal to make it profitable.

She is hard working, and thanks Kiva lenders for supporting their businesses, which will improve their family's well being.
