Harriet's Group's story

N. Harriet is the leader of Mutai group in Jinja. She is a married lady with a charcoal selling business. She sells both as a wholesaler and a retailer. She buys the charcoal from the forests, loads the lorry, and takes the charcoal to her shack, where she stores it. Since most of her customers buy in small gallons, she is able to make a weekly profit of 30,000 Ushs. As a result, she has been able to buy herself a plot of land and pay fees for her children.

Harriet needs a loan to be able to buy more charcoal for her business. Once she has access to money and more savings, she plans to construct rental houses as well as to expand her business to include firewood for sale.
