Jamila
Jamila lives in Uganda. She is married and has three children, two of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (her in-laws).

Jamila has a food stall. She has been in this business for over 10 years, and she works 7 days out of every week. Jamila sells her products at the market, by means of retail. Jamila has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas and sweet and Irish potatoes.

The main business challenges for Jamila include seasonality, thieves and defaulters. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start selling wholesale only and also to start going to villages for foodstuffs. Jamila lives in a home that she owns; she has access to electricity but doesn't have access to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
