Kulabako Faridah Group's story

N. is 27 years old and married with 4 children. She rents a one-room house and four people live in it. She has access to piped water and electricity. She does not have additional family to look after.


She normally has four meals a day. Her greatest expenditure is food, because all the food they eat at home is purchased.


N. runs a salon / cosmetics shop which is located in the market centre. She works 5 days a week, and her only expense is market dues for her business.


She mainly receives women customers to her salon. She has done this business for over six years now, although previously she had tried to sell piped water to her neighbours. The only problem she sometimes faces in her business is the potential for losses, although it is not common occurrence.

She has been with MCDT for five years now, and the reason why she chose to work with MCDT is because she wanted to start a business. She is going to use this loan to increase her business.
