Florence works in a semi-urban area which is on the outskirts of Kampala. She incurs transport costs to and from buying chicken from poultry farmers. She owns a stall in Kalerwe market selling chicken of all types, including local layers and broilers. She works seven days a week. She receives an average of 30 customers a day and sells to all categories of people, both in retail and wholesale. Her greatest monthly expenses include feeding the family and school fees for her children. Her major business challenges are transportation and thieves. She has been in this business for fifteen years and with MCDT for nine years, now servicing her twenty-third loan and working with the same group mates. Florence joined MCDT because it was near her home amd works with poor women. She wants to use this loan to buy more chicken. She aspires to see her business grow bigger, to start selling wholesale only, and to farm poultry.
