Christine's story

Christine lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with five children. Only two of the children are in school. She doesn’t take care of any additional family members. It is five years since she started a little food stall in the market, selling on a retail basis. She works seven days a week. She generates additional income through selling charcoal. Christine has applied for a loan of 800,000= Uganda shilling from MCDT-SACCO to buy more charcoal, cooking oil, baking flour, and cow peas. Her business challenges are transportation and increasing prices of cooking oil and baking flour. Her goals and aspirations are to own a fully stocked stall and also to buy additional land and build some rooms for renting. Christine decided to work with MCDT-SACCO because the interest charges are fair. She owns the house where she stays. She has access to electricity and to piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are feeding the family and school fees.
