Teopista's story

Teopista lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has 9 children, four of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (grandchildren). Teopista has operated a business rearing chickens for over 10 years, working 7 days every week. Teopista retails her products from home. She also generates additional income through rental rooms.

Teopista has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy chickens and bags of chicken feed. The main business challenges for Teopista include thieves who always break into her chicken houses and steal her chickens, and transportation of chicken feed. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to own a delivery van to help with transportation and to own burglar-proof doors.

Teopista lives in a home that she owns; she has access to electricity and to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include feeding the family and medication.
