Sarah
Sarah lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is a widow with four children who do not attend school. She is also looking after two grandchildren. Sarah stays in a rented house without access to either electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and rent.

Sarah has been selling fish in the market, at retail, for eight years and works seven days a week. She generates additional income through selling sweet bananas. She has requested a loan of 800,000 UGX from MCDT- SACCO to buy baskets of fish and sweet bananas for sale. Her challenges include transportation and seasonality. Sarah's dream is to turn her business into wholesale and accumulate profits that will enable her to build a house on her land and also to become a wholesaler. She joined MCDT because loans are easy to access.
