Cissy takes care of additional family members. The family has access to electricity but no piped water. She has a stall selling second-hand clothes and works from her home. She works in the outskirts of Kampala. She has been in this business for eight years and with MCDT for 10 years. Cissy buys used clothes from Owino market and so incurs transport costs. Her challenges include transportation and increasing prices of second-hand clothes. Cissy wants to use this loan to buy more bales of second-hand clothes. She hopes to see her business grow stronger and start selling only on wholesale.
