Lukiya's story

Lukiya lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is widowed and has five children, two of whom are in school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members.

Lukiya has a business of selling used clothes. She has been in this business for 5 years, and she works 7 days out of every week. Lukiya sells her products door-to-door, by means of retail.

Lukiya has requested a loan of 700,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more bales of used clothes. She also generates additional income through selling piped water. The main business challenges for Lukiya include transportation and increasing prices of used clothes. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to start selling on wholesale and to build rental rooms. Lukiya lives in a home that she owns; she has access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
