Faith lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with two children, one of whom attends school. She is looking after her parents as well.
Faith has been selling cooked food in the market at retail for five years, working seven days a week. She does not have any other side job.
She has requested a loan of 150,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to be able to buy cooking utensils and also stock rice, cooking oil, spices and flour. Her challenges include seasonality and transportation.
Faith’s dream is to grow her business and be able to operate in another area, thus accumulating profits for building rental houses. She joined MCDT because her friends assured her that MCDT-SACCO would give her loans as promised.
Faith stays in her husband`s house with access to electricity, but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees.
