Rehema lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with two children, both of them attending school. She has one additional family member (her mother). Rehema sells old clothes in the market on a daily basis and works seven days a week. She has run her business for six years.
Rehema has applied for 400,000 UGX to enable her to buy additional clothes. She sells sweet bananas and green bananas as her additional income source. The main challenges for her business are seasonality and ever increasing prices of used clothes. Her goals and aspirations include expanding her business into a wholesale one and also building her own house. She rents the house she lives in, and the family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are rent and school fees.
