Mariam lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children and all her children are in school. She sells second-hand clothes door – to – door. She takes care of additional family members (her young sisters). She has been in this business for the last three years. She works six days a week. Her major business challenges are transportation and seasonality.
Mariam has requested a loan of Uganda shillings 300,000 from MCDT SACCO to buy a bale of second-hand clothes. Her aspirations are to get permanent business premises and to build rental houses. She lives in her own house and the family has access to electricity but has no access to piped water. Her major expenses monthly include school fees and food.
