A loan of $225 helped to buy more food for her restaurant.


Sharifah's story

Sharifah N. is single and has no children. She lives in the Kalerwe neighborhood of the city of Kampala in a home that she rents. She doesn't have access to electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent.


Sharifah upgraded her food stall to a restaurant operated from her home. She has been in the restaurant business for one month, and she works seven days out of every week. The main problems for Sharifah include the rainy season and defaulters.


Sharifah has requested a loan of 500,000 UGX from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas, beef, rice and sweet and Irish potatoes. Her aspiration for her business is to have a fully stocked restaurant and also improve her standard of living.
