A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy scrap.

Black Smith Development Group's story

Atanasi is a 37-year-old member of the Black Smith Development Group, married with three children aged 15, 12 and 4 and all of them attend school.
Atanasi started this job of scrap collecting twelve years ago because he did not have any working capital to start any business having dropped out of school due to lack of tuition. His daily job routine is waking up early in the morning and moving around the city in search for old metallic materials that help him in making items like charcoal stoves and saucepans that he sells to earn a living.
Atanasi loves his family and he is willing to work harder each day to provide the best life for them. He approached Ugafode Microfinance Ltd (MDI) for a loan to boost up his business by buying bigger pieces of used metal for recycling.
