Norah
Norah K. lives in the Ntinda neighborhood in the city of Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, all of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (mother and her sister's children).

Norah has a bar business. She changed her business enterprise from second-hand clothing to the bar business two months ago. She works 7 days a week. Norah sells wholesale/retail out of her home. Norah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more crates of beer, soda, and boxes of mineral water. She also generates additional income through renting rooms.

The main business challenge for Norah includes the transportation of crates of beer in the rainy season. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to own a fully stocked bar and also to start selling wholesale only. Norah lives in a home that she owns. She has access to electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
