A loan of $500 helped to buy more bunches of Cavendish bananas.


Leah's story

Leah is married with four children, all of whom are in school. She also takes care of an additional family member, a young sister. She has a business selling Cavendish bananas and has been in this business for 7 years. She has applied for a loan of 1,200,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bunches of Cavendish bananas. She works six days a week at the market and sells on wholesale only. Her major business challenges include seasonality and the transportation of bunches of Cavendish bananas from the villages to her stall in the market.

Leah aspires to see her business grow bigger so that she earns enough profits to buy a delivery van to ease her transportation challenges and to educate her children up to university. She decided to join MCDT-SACCO because it is trustworthy. She resides in a rented house without access to electricity or piped water. Her monthly expenses include rent, feeding the family, and school fees.
