Margaret
Margaret lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with five children, all of whom attend school. She is also looking after additional members of her family (brother and sister).

For the last twenty years, Margaret has been selling in a shop, at retail, groundnuts and beans. She works seven days a week. She also has rental houses as another source of income.

Margaret has requested a loan of 1,100,000 UGX from Micro Credit for Development and Transformation SACCO (MCDT SACCO) to enable her to buy more sacks of groundnuts for sale. Her challenges include the high cost of transport. Her dream is to be able to buy a whole truck of groundnuts and even sell to other retailers.

Margaret joined MCDT SACCO because of the low capital that she had. She lives in her husband`s house without access to electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and electric power.
