Lillian lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children, all of whom go to school. She takes care of one additional family member who is an orphan. She sells fruits, vegetables and sweet bananas on a wholesale basis at the market. She has been in business for the last four years. She works six days a week.

She has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more boxes of fruits, vegetables and bunches of sweet bananas. Her goal and aspirations are to start going to villages for fruits like oranges, pineapples, mangoes and sweet bananas, and also to educate her children to the university level. Her major business challenges are seasonality and the increasing prices of foodstuffs in Uganda.

She lives in a rented house, and the family has access to electricity but does not have access to piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees, rent and food.
