Rose's story

Rose lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with eight children, three of whom currently attend school. She is not looking after any other members of the family.

She has been operating a retail shop for basic commodities for ten years and works seven days a week. She has no other source of income.

She has requested a loan of UShs 2,000,000 from MCDT-SACCO to buy rice, flour, cooking oil, soda, fruit juices, sugar and salt for sale.

Her challenges include transportation and recovering payment from debtors. Her dream is to own a fully stocked shop and also to become a wholesaler.

She joined MCDT because it is easy to become a member. She rents a house with access to electricity, but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses are school fees and rent.
