Jalia's story

Jalia is married with three children, all of whom go to school. She lives in Kampala, Uganda, where she sells second-hand shoes at the market. Jalia has been in this business for the last five years and she works six days a week. Her major business challenges are transportation and seasonality. Jalia has no additional family members and she lives in her own house with electricity but no running water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and food.

Jalia is requesting a 500,000 UGX loan from MCDT SACCO to buy more bales of used shoes. Her aspirations and goals are to buy a truck to transport her products and to become a wholesaler.
