For over ten years Florence has owned a mini-bakery retailing chapatti from Kikuubo, one of the busiest places in Kampala, and so incurs transport costs to and from shopping and receives an average of 40 customers a day. Her main challenges are defaulters, the rainy season because she works from a muddy place, and ever-increasing prices for baking flour and cooking oil.
She has been with MCDT for over seven years and will now be servicing her sixteenth loan, working all this time with the same group mates. Florence wants to use this loan to buy more cartons of baking flour and jerrycans of cooking oil. She aspires to see her business grow bigger and eventually hopes to start a big bakery
