Jane's story

Jane lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has five children, all of whom are in school. She also takes care of additional family members (aging parents). Jane lives in a home that she rents; she has access to electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include feeding the family, school costs, and rent.

Jane has a tailoring business, which she's been in for eight years. She works six days out of every week and doesn’t have any other income-generating activities. She sells her products in a shop. Jane has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT SACCO, which she will use to buy more rolls of cloth and an electric sewing machine.

Jane's main business challenges are seasonality and defaulters. Her goals and aspirations for her business are to own a tailoring school and to educate her children up to the university level.
