A loan helped to buy more bunches of green bananas to sell.


Mary's story

Mary lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children, and all go to school. She also cares for her brother’s daughter and stepdaughter. Their rental has electricity but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees, food and rent.

For the past ten years Mary has sold green bananas at the market, working seven days a week. Her major challenges include transportation and the seasonality of bananas.

Mary has requested a loan of 1,400,000 UGX from MCDT SACCO to buy more bunches of bananas to sell. Her aspiration is to build rental houses and educate her children to university level.
