Cissy's story

Cissy is divorced with eight children, two of whom go to school. She takes care of additional family members (orphans). She resides in a rented house, and the family has access to electricity but no piped water. Her monthly expenses include rent and school fees.

Cissy has a restaurant that caters to all categories of people on a retail basis. She has applied for a loan of 700,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bunches of bananas, beef, rice, Irish and sweet potatoes, and chicken. Besides this restaurant business she generates additional income through working as dry cleaner. She has been in this business for 8 years and works six days a week. Her major business challenges include transportation and the rainy season because she works in a muddy place. She aspires to see her business grow so that she can own a fully stocked restaurant and build her own house.
