Betty's story

Betty lives in Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, all of whom are in school. Betty has a business of selling secondhand clothes. She has been in this business for 4 years, and she works 7 days out of every week. She sells her products at the market, by means of retail.

She has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bales of secondhand clothes. She also generates additional income through a pub. The main business challenges for Betty include seasonality and thieves. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start selling at wholesale only, to open up another shop selling clothes, and also to build rental rooms.

Betty lives in a home that she rents where she has access to electricity and to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
