Jane has been selling potatoes, cassava, tomatoes and banana-leaf sweets by the roadside for the last four years. She works seven days a week. The seasonality involved in selling produce is a major challenge for her.
She joined MCDT-SACCO because she wanted to boost her business and to pay school fees for her child. She is applying for a loan of 300,000 UGX to enable her to sell more varieties of food. Her dream is to make more in profits so that she can buy some land.
