Rose lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is with six children, all of whom attend school. She is not looking after any additional family members. She stays in a rented house without access to either electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
Rose has been involved in selling cooked food, door-to-door, retail for three years, working six days a week. She does not have any other additional source of income. She has requested a loan of 300,000 UGX from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to buy more yams, beef, rice, Irish potatoes and cassava for sale. Her challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dream is to own a restaurant so that she stops moving from place to place selling food. She joined MCDT because of the low interest charge on loans.
