Sulaina owns a ladies' salon in Kisaasi, a semi-urban area on the outskirts of Kampala. She incurs transport costs to and from buying creams and cosmetics in Kampala city shops mainly in Kikuubo, one of the busiest places in Uganda. Working seven days a week, Sulaina receives an average of 30 customers a day and works on all categories of children and women. Her greatest monthly expenses include feeding the family, school fees for her children and rent for her business and residence. Her major business challenges are the rainy season which hinders her customers in reaching out to her because she works in a muddy place.
Sulaina has been in this business for four years and with MCDT for six years, now servicing her twelfth loan and working with the same group mates. Sulaina joined MCDT because it was near her home and was working with poor women. She wants to use this loan to buy more hair relaxers and cosmetics. She aspires to see her business grower bigger and to develop a bridal salon .
