Agnes lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children, two of whom attend school. She is not looking after any other family members.
Agnes has been selling fish in the market at retail for the last two years, working seven days a week. She also runs a salon to earn extra income.
She has requested a loan of UGX 300,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her buy more fish for resale. Her challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dream is to be able to buy more fish, which she can sell to customers. She aspires to become a wholesaler of fish and also to buy a plot of land on which to build her own house.
Agnes joined MCDT because of the good customer care the staff members practice. She stays with her husband in a rented house with access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expense is rent.
