Juliet
Juliet is 40 years of age, married, and has five children aged between six and eighteen years, all of whom go to school. She also takes care of additional family members. The family own a five-roomed house where Juliet lives with eight people. She has access to electricity but no piped water at home. The family eats three meals a day. Her greatest monthly expenses are utility bills, school fees, medication, and feeding the family.

Juliet owns a stall selling bananas and tomatoes in Mengo Mackay. She sells both retail and wholesale. She works seven days a week and serves an average of 40 customers a day. She has been in this business for over ten years. Her main challenges are seasonal changes and the rainy season because she works from a muddy place.

Juliet has been with Kiva partner, MCDT SACCO, for three years and is now on her seventh loan. She has always worked with the same group mates. She wants to use this loan to buy more bunches of bananas and tomatoes. She hopes to see her business grow and start buying directly from farmers.
