She has requested a loan of USHS 400,000 from MCDT-SACCO to enable her to buy more shoes to sell. Her challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dream is to expand her businesses. She joined MCDT because of the low interest charge on loans. She stays in her husband's house, which has access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees.
