Dalia's story

Dalia is divorced with four children and all her children go to school. She also takes care of her sister’s children. She resides in and owns a two-roomed house and the family has access to electricity but no piped water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees, food and medication.

Dalia bakes donuts and crisps (chips), and also fries groundnuts (peanuts). She has been in this business for five years. She works from her home and so doesn’t pay rent for her business. She sells both retail and wholesale, working three days a week.

Dalia buys baking powder and groundnuts from Owino market, one of the busiest marts in Uganda. She wants to use this loan to buy more cartons of baking powder, cooking oil, a bag of Irish potatoes for making crisps and a sack of groundnuts.

Dalia is aspiring to pay school fees for her children up to university level and to own a fully-stocked bakery. She decided to work with MCDT SACCO because of its good customer care.
