Eva is married with five children, three of whom attend school. She also takes care of additional family members (old parents). She has a retail shop and has applied for a loan of 1500000 Uganda shillings from MCDTSACCO to buy more items (sugar, salt, soap, cooking oil, maize, flour, and rice). She sells retail to many people seven days a week at the market. Her major business challenges include transportation of commodities (from Kikuubo in Kampala city to her shop) and the ever-increasing prices of commodities in Uganda. She aspires to see her business grow into a wholesale shop and also to buy a delivery van to make transportation easier. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
