Janepher is a single lady with no children, but she takes care of two of her sister's children. She resides in a rented house and the family has access to electricity but no piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees for her sister's children and rent. Janepher has a business selling used clothes and has been in this business for six years.
Janepher has applied for a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bales of used clothes. She goes door to door selling used clothes. Her major business challenges include seasonality and thieves. She is hoping to get enough profits to build her own house and also to become a wholesaler.
