Christine's story

Christine S. lives in the Kitawuluzi section of Kampala, Uganda. She is widowed and has four children, all of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members, including her grandchildren. For the last five years, Christine has made a living selling second-hand shoes. She works seven days a week out of her home, and is applying for a loan for 1,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more used shoes to sell to her customers. She supplements her income by farming, and her main challenges are high transportation costs and people who do not pay their bills on time. Her goal is to open a wholesale business. Christine owns her home and has access to electricity and piped-in water. Her major monthly expenses are utilities, school fees and food.
