Sarah's story

Sarah Kisenyi, who lives in the Ntinda neighbourhood of Kampala, Uganda, is married and has three children, all of whom are in school. She lives in a rented home that has access to both electricity and piped water, and her major monthly expenses include rent, school fees, food and utility bills.

Sarah has been operating a restaurant for three years, working six days a week. She has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more bananas, beef, rice, Irish potatoes, chicken and bags of charcoal.

Sarah faces two main business challenges: ever-increasing prices for foodstuffs, and thieves who break into the restaurant to steal her utensils and foodstuffs. Her goal for the business is to own a fully-stocked restaurant.
