Mary is married with three children, all of whom are in school. She owns her own home, with access to electricity and piped water. Mary’s monthly expenses include school fees and food for the family.

For the past ten years Mary has run a clinic (her only source of income). Thieves and seasonality are her major business challenges.

Mary has applied for a 2,500,000 UGX loan from MCDT SACCO to buy more boxes of drugs such as syrups and other tablets. Her ambition is to see her business grow into a full hospital. She also wants to build rentals in an area near her home.
