Ruth is married with five children, all of whom attend school. She lives in Kampala, Uganda, and does not look after any other family members. For the past seven years, Ruth has been selling second-hand skirts in the market. She works seven days a week and also manages rental houses as another source of income. Ruth's business challenges include thieves and seasonality. She lives with her husband and her family has access to both electricity and running water. Ruth's major monthly expenses are school fees. She joined MCDT because their interest rates are relatively low.
Ruth is requesting a 1,000,000 UGX loan from MCDT- SACCO to buy more bales of used clothes such as skirts, dresses, and blouses to sell. Her dream is to have a big boutique.
