A loan of $125 helped to buy and sell more varieties of food.


Jane's story

Jane lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with two children, one of whom attends school. She also helps support her sisters. Jane and her family live in a rental with access to both electricity and piped water. Their major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.


Jane has been selling potatoes, cassava, tomatoes and banana-leaf sweets by the roadside for the last four years. She works seven days a week. The seasonality involved in selling produce is a major challenge for her.


She joined MCDT-SACCO because she wanted to boost her business and to pay school fees for her child. She is applying for a loan of 300,000 UGX to enable her to sell more varieties of food. Her dream is to make more in profits so that she can buy some land.
