Milly lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has four children, two of whom currently attend school. She is not looking after any other family members. She lives in a rented house with access to electricity but not piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
For the past 10 years, she has been selling second hand clothes in the market. She works six days a week and has no other source of income. She has requested a loan of 1,000,000 UGX from MCDT- SACCO in order to buy more second hand shirts, blouses, skirts and bed sheets to sell. One of her main challenges is transportationand ever increasing prices of used clothes. Her dream is to turn her business into a wholesale business. She joined MCDT because of the low loan interest charged and even wanted to access school fees loans so that she can educate her children up to university.
