Maddy is 42 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala North region of Uganda. She is married and has two children with one of them currently in school. For the past four years, Maddy has been working hard to manage her grocery shop, selling bread, milk, sugar, posho, rice, and beans.
To help expand her business, Maddy has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more bread, milk, sugar, posho, rice and beans, and will help Maddy to generate greater profits and improve her standard of living. Maddy hopes that in the future, she will be able to become a leading shopkeeper.
