Annet lives in Uganda. She is single and has three children, all of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (her mother).
Annet has a business selling bananas. She has been in this business for three years and she works seven days out of every week. Annet sells her products from home, by means of wholesale/retail.
Annet has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from Kiva partner MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas to sell.
The main business challenges for Annet include transportation and ever increasing prices of bananas in Uganda. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to see her business growing big so that she can get enough profits to buy a delivery van. Annet lives in a home that she owns but she doesn't have access to electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and medications.
