A loan of $150 helped to buy more bundles of sugar cane to resell.


Rebecca's story

Rebecca lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with seven children, three of whom attend school. She is not looking after additional members of her family.

She has been selling sugar cane in the market at retail for ten years, working six days a week. She does not have an additional source of income.

She has requested for a loan of 400,000 UGX from MCDT- SACCO to enable her buy more bundles of sugar cane to resell. Her challenges include high transport costs and seasonality. Her dream is to expand her business to wholesale; she also wants to start growing sugar cane. She joined MCDT because she did not have enough capital. She rents a house with access to electricity and no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent and school fees.
