A loan of $725 helped to buy more items to sell to her customers.


Resty's story

Resty lives in Uganda with her husband and four children, one of whom is old enough to attend school. She also cares for her parents and her late sister's children. For the last eight years, she has earned a living by running a retail shop where she works seven days a week. Resty is applying for a loan for 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more items to sell to her customers, including soap, sugar, salt and cooking oil. She supplements the income she earns in her shop by selling second-hand clothing and shoes. Her main challenges are rising prices, slow business during the rainy season and the high cost of transportation. Her goals for the future include owning a wholesale shop and a delivery van. She owns the home she lives in and has access to electricity and piped-in water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and food for her family.
