Annet lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with three children, all of whom attend school. She is not looking after any additional family members. She has been selling green bananas in the market at retail for four years and works seven days a week. She also runs a retail shop for basic commodities as another source of income.
She has requested a loan of UGX 800,000 from MCDT- SACCO to enable her buy more bunches of green bananas for resale. Her challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dream is to plough her profits back into the business, to expand her business, and also to buy a delivery van to ease in transportation. She joined MCDT because she did not have enough capital. She stays in her own house without access to either electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees.
