Edith's story

Edith lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has two children, both of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (elderly parents). Edith has a business selling bunches of bananas. She has been in this business for 10 years, and she works seven days every week. Edith sells her products at the market by means of retail.

She has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bunches of bananas to sell. Edith also generates additional income through selling charcoal. The main business challenges for Edith include seasonality and thieves. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to become a wholesaler and also to start going to villages for bananas. Edith lives in a home that she rents; she has access to electricity but doesn't have access to piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent, school fees and medication.
