Betty is a first time borrower of the institution and is applying for UGX 3,000,000. She is 50 years old and a single lady. She has been engaged in events management since 1990 and sells Chinese furniture she gets from importers in the country. She supplements the income with a decorating business. Betty says sale of Chinese furniture is a good venture but she is constrained by small capital that leaves her in a position where she cannot meet her clients' demands. She therefore applied for the loan to increase her stock as a way of making her shop a one stop furniture shopping centre and increasing sales and gross profits.
Betty’s future plan is to see her business flourish to a point where she can import the products herself which would increase her profits since apparently she buys them expensively, making her profits minimal.
