Christine is married with seven children and all her children go to school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members.
She has a business selling green bananas and has been in this business for 8 years, selling to all categories of people but on a retail basis. She has applied for a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more bunches of green bananas. She doesn’t have any other income generating activity.
She works at the market six days out of every week. Her major business challenges include transportation and seasonality. She aspires to becoming a wholesaler and also to start going to villages in Masaka for green bananas. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees and paying for electricity bills.
