Evas K. lives in Kisaasi, a neighborhood in the city of Kampala, Uganda. She and her husband have five children, all of whom are in school. Evas sells bananas at market for a living and has been in this business for over 10 years. She works six days a week. Her primary business challenges are transportation and seasonality.
Evas has requested a loan of 1,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas to offer for sale. Her goal is eventually to own a delivery van, thus overcoming her transportation hurdle. She aspires to see her children educated through university level.
Evas and her family live in a rented home with access to electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and medication.
