Aisha's story

Aisha N. lives in the Kitawuluzi section of Kampala, Uganda. She is widowed and has two children, both of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members, including several grandchildren. For the last five years, she has made a living by working seven days a week to sell bananas and sweet potatoes. She is applying for a loan for 1,200,000 Ugandan Shillings to buy more bananas and sweet potatoes to sell to her customers. Aisha earns additional income by selling food that she has cooked. Her main challenges are transportation and customers who fail to pay their bills. Her goal is to start buying goods directly from farmers and selling those goods in wholesale markers. She lives in a home that she owns and has access to electricity and piped-in water. Her major monthly expenses are utilities, school fees and food.
