Jane lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with two children, one of whom attends school. She also helps support her sisters. Jane and her family live in a rental with access to both electricity and piped water. Their major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.

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.
