Annet lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children and all of them are attending school. She does not look after any other family members. She rents a house with access to electricity, but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
Working seven days a week, Annet has been selling green bananas in a market at retail for eight years. She does not have any other source of income. She has requested a loan of 400,000 UGX from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to buy more bunches of green bananas for sale. Her challenges include seasonality. Her dream is to be able to expand the business and become a wholesaler for all kinds of raw food. She joined MCDT because it is easy to become a member.
