A loan of $425 helped to buy more used clothing to sell to her customers..


Jalia's story

Jalia is married and the mother of three children, all of whom attend school. For the last five years, she has earned a living by selling used clothing to all types of people. She also earns additional income by renting rooms. She has applied for a loan for 1,000,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT–SACCO to buy more used clothing to sell to her customers. Her major business challenges are the seasonal nature of her work and people who default on their payments. She wants to see her business grow so that she can afford to send her children to university, and she hopes to do that by importing used clothes from Mombasa. She lives in a home that she owns and which has access to electricity and piped-in water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees and food for her family.
