Zam, a single mother of four children, all of whom are in school, resides in her own house, and the family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees and food.
Working seven days a week, Zam has been operating a stall selling green bananas at the market for 15 years. Her major challenges include thieves and seasonality.
Zam has requested a loan of Uganda shillings 1,500,000 from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bunches of green bananas. She would like to start growing bananas and also educate her children up to the university level.
