Winnie
Winnie is married and has five children, and all of her children go to school. She has no additional family members. She resides in a rented house, and the family has access to electricity, but does not have access to piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.

Winnie sells charcoal at the market, on both a wholesale and a retail basis. She has been in business for eight years. She works seven days a week. She has applied for a loan of Uganda shillings 500,000 from MCDT-SACCO. She will use the loan to buy more bags of charcoal to sell. Her major business challenges include seasonality (the rainy season), which hinders her movements, and the ever-increasing price of charcoal.

She aspires to get a delivery van, and also to buy a plot of land.
