Christine's story

Christine is married with three children; only two of her children go to school. She also takes care of two brothers. They live in a rented house in which they have access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and rent.

For the past ten years Christine has sold fruits and vegetables. Seasonality and perishability are her major challenges.

She has applied for a loan of 1,500,000 UGX from SACCO to buy more boxes of tomatoes, onions, cabbages, pineapples and oranges to sell. Her ambition is to grow her business so that she can start growing those fruits herself. She would also like to become a wholesaler and to buy a plot of land upon which to build her own house.
