A loan of $200 helped to buy more rice, Irish potatoes, and cooking oil.

Justine's story

Justine lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with two children, both of whom currently attend school. She is looking after her siblings and her mother. Justine has been selling cooked food from door to door for three years, and she works seven days per week. She has no other source of income. She rents a house with access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and rent.

Justine has requested a loan of UGX 500,000 from MCDT-SACCO to increase her stocks of rice, Irish potatoes, and cooking oil. Her challenges include unstable food prices and moving from door to door. Her dream is to own a fully stocked restaurant and to build her own house. She joined MCDT because she had little capital to support her business.
