Angella is married with five children, three of whom go to school. She also takes care of additional family members. She has a business selling fruit, and has been in this business for ten years. She also generates additional income through selling beer and local brew. She works from her home and sells to all categories of people, but on a retail basis, seven days a week. Her major business challenge includes transportation and seasonality. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and utility bills.
Angella has applied for a loan of 1,300,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from MCDT-SACCO to buy more baskets of cabbages, mangoes, oranges, and pineapples. She aspires to become a wholesaler and also to start growing some of the fruits herself.
