Rebecca lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with two children, and one of them attends school. She is not looking after any other members of the family.

She has been selling shoes in the market at retail for four months, working six days a week. She also keeps animals and poultry as other sources of income.

She has requested a loan of UShs 200,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to buy more shoes for sale. Her challenges include the unstable seasonality. Her dream is to expand her business, accumulate profits and buy a piece of land. She joined MCDT because she realized that she would not be able to realize her dream without increasing her capital. She rents a house that is without access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and electricity bills.
