A loan helped To buy more bunches of bananas to sell.
Rehema lives in the city of Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has four children, all of whom are in school. Rehema has a business selling bananas. She has been in this business for over 10 years, and she works six days out of every week. Rehema sells her products at the market — wholesale and retail. She has requested a loan of 1000000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas. The main business challenges for Rehema are defaulters and seasonality. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start buying bananas direct from farmers and also to sell only wholesale. Rehema lives in a home that she rents. She has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and utility bills.
