Annet is a single mother of three children, and all her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (sister and brother). Annet has a business selling local gin and has been in this business for ten years. She has applied for a loan of 900,000 UGX from MCDT SACCO to buy more jerrycans of local gin. Annet works at the market seven days a week and sells both retail and wholesale. Her major business challenges include transportation and thieves. She aspires to see her business grow enough so that she can buy a delivery van to ease transportation. She would also like to build rental rooms. She resides in her own house, and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and feeding her family.
