A loan of $375 helped to buy more bales of secondhand and new clothes.

Berna's story

Berna is widowed with five children. Two of her children died and the rest are in school. She also takes care of her late brother’s son.

She owns a shop in Kamwokya where she sells children's clothes, both new and old. She has been in this business for five years.

Berna wants to use this loan to buy more bales of secondhand and new baby’s clothes. She works seven days a week. Her business challenges are seasonality and defaulters.

She would like to be able to build rental rooms in the available space, and also to see her business grow bigger. She would like to import the clothes directly. She joined MCDT because of the low interest rate charged.

She owns and resides in a three-room house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include food, school fees and utility bills.
