A loan of $250 helped to buy scrap.


Sarah's story

Sarah is a repeat borrower in her third loan cycle. She is a widow and a mother of six. In addition to her children, she looks after her sister’s children because her sister passed away two years ago.

Sarah is involved in the business of collecting plastics and other scrap materials. Her daily job routine is waking up early in the morning and moving around the city in search of old plastic materials. She sells them to different factories for recycling. However, this does not only benefit Sarah through earning a living, it’s also a benefit to the environment since she is involved in reducing waste. She wants the loan to buy scrap.

Sarah is a hardworking lady and because of this, she has managed to educate her children and provide other basic materials for them. Sarah approached Ugafode Microfinance Ltd. (MDI) for a loan to boost her business.
