Allen's story

Allen is married, with five children, three of whom go to school. She has a retail shop selling sugar, soap, salt, bread and beans. She has applied for a loan of 2,000,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more sugar, salt, soap, beer and soda.

She has been doing this for 10 years, selling on a retail basis only. She generates additional income through rental houses. Her major business challenges include the transportation of commodities from Kikuubo in Kampala to her shop, thieves and defaulters.

She hopes to own a fully stocked wholesale shop and also to buy a delivery van to ease transportation. She lives in her own house, and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses includes electricity, water and school fees.
