Sarah's story

Sarah lives in Uganda. She is single and has 5 children, four of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (her elderly parents). Sarah 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 school fees, rent, and feeding the family.

Sarah has a business selling local gin. She has been in this business for 10 years, and she works 7 days out of every week. Sarah retails her products at the market.

Sarah has requested a loan of 1,000,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more jerrycans of gin. Her main business challenges include thieves and transportation. Her goals and aspirations are to start going to villages in Kasese for local gin and to build her own house.
