Rehema's story

Rehema is married with five children and three of her children go to school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members. She has a business selling food such as cassava and sweet potatoes. She has applied for a loan of 1,000,000 Uganda Shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy more bags of sweet potatoes and cassava. She has been in this business for 15 years and sells to all categories of people both in retail and wholesale. Her major business challenges include transportation, thieves and seasonality. She aspires to one day own a delivery van for transportation, to sell only wholesale, and to earn enough profit to buy a plot of land and build her own house. She currently resides in a rented house and the family has access to electricity but not piped water. Her monthly expenses include rent and school fees.
