Sarah lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children, three of whom attend school. She is not looking after any other family members. She has been selling second hand clothes in the market at retail for four years, working six days a week. She does not earn any additional income.

Her dream is to expand her business and be able to sell at wholesale and also to build her own house. She joined MCDT-SACCO because of timely loans. She stays in a rented house with access to electricity but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses are rent, transport, school fees and water.
