Mwanje Florence Group's story

M. Florence is 46 years of age. She is married with seven children between the ages of 11 and 25. She rents a six-room house, where she stays with her family. She has access to piped water and electricity. She also looks after her late brother's two children. She normally has two meals a day and her greatest expenses are feeding her family and transport to her place of work.

She sells dry beans and she does this in a shop she rents. She works six days a week. She sells her beans on a wholesale basis and she receives about five customers a day. She has done this business for eight years now and besides this she also makes liquid soap and sells it.

Her main challenges in this business are rainy seasons, which disrupt her business because the roads become impassable so she can't get transport for her beans easily, and price fluctuations that affect the prices of commodities.

She has been with MCDT for five years now and she has also been with her group for five years. She will use this loan to increase her stock.
