Esther's story

Esther lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children, and only one is currently attending school. She is also looking after her parents. She has been selling tomatoes, onions and green bananas from her home for the last 10 years on a retail basis, working six days a week. She does not have an additional source of income.

She has requested a loan of UShs 800,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to stock more baskets of tomatoes, onions and green bananas to sell. Her challenges include the seasonality of supply and high prices. Her dream is to expand her business and start selling at wholesale. She joined MCDT because she wanted to expand her business. She rents a house without access to either electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expense is rent.
