Margaret lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with three children, two of whom attend school. She is not looking after any other family members. She has been selling pineapples at retail from a market for ten years, working seven days a week, and has no other source of income.

She has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to be able to purchase more pineapples to sell.

Her challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dream is to buy a piece of land and grow her own pineapples and become a wholesaler. She joined MCDT because they take services to where members stay. She rents a house.
