Josephine is married with five children, and all her children go to school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members. She has a business of making and selling local brew, and she sells to all categories of people, at retail. Josephine has applied for a loan of 500000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO, to buy more bags of millet, cassava flour and firewood. She has been in the brewing business for three years. Her major business challenges include defaulters and seasonality. She aspires to own a fully-stocked pub selling local brew, and also to become a wholesaler.
