Agnes lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with three children and all of them attend school. She is not looking after any additional family members.
She has been operating a pub for five years, working a full week. She also operates an eating-place for additional income.
She has requested for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to stock more crates of beer, soda, spirits and local brew. Her challenges include recovering money from clients who buy on credit and also seasonality. Her dream is to expand her business to a bigger pub, thus creating more employment and also to build her own house. She joined MCDT because she did not have to give collateral in order to access loans. She rents a house with access to electricity and no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
