Margaret Namujju‘S Group's story

Margaret, age 40, is the leader of a group of five members. She is the single mother of four children between the ages of 14 and 20. All her children go to school. She rents a one-roomed house where she lives with her children. There is electricity and piped water at her home and she ensures that the family gets three meals a day. She resides and works in a semi-urban area on the outskirts of Kampala.

Margaret sells secondhand clothes door to door. She sells to an average of 20 people a day, and she works seven days a week. Margaret buys these clothes from Owino market, one of the busiest markets in the city of Kampala. Her major monthly expenses include rent, electricity, and medication. She also incurs extra transportation costs to and from the market. She has been in this business for the last 20 years and sells to all categories of people. Her main challenges are the increasing prices of clothes and seasonal ups and downs in sales. Prior to this business, Margaret was selling charcoal.

She has been with MCDT for over six years. She and her fellow group mates have received and repaid 11 loans before this one.

Margaret wants to use this loan to buy a bale of clothes. She aspires tocontinue to improve her business and dreams of owning a permanent business premise.
