A loan of $650 helped a member increase her stock.


Bulya Rose Group's story

Bulya R. is 30 years of age; she is married with four children, ages 11 to three years. She rents a single-roomed house and that’s where she stays with her family. Her house has neither water nor electricity. She also takes care of additional family members in her house. She has three meals a day and her greatest expense in a month is for food.

Bulya R. sells necklaces and she does her business door-to-door. She works six days a week. She gets about 20 customers a day; she mainly sells to women and she sells on a retail basis. She started her business selling vegetables but later on, changed to selling necklaces.

The main challenge she faces in her business is that since she has to walk, she gets very tired at the end of the day. She has worked with MCDT for 4 years and she has received loans for 8 years now. The reason why she chose to work with MCDT is because it was the only institution that could lend her money without collateral. She has worked with her group for one year now. And she wants to use this loan to increase her stock.

Bulya R.'s aspiration is to expand in her business and be able to rent a room to sell her necklaces.
