A loan of $775 helped to buy more bags of rice.


Geraida's story

Gerailda is widowed with four children. None of her children go to school. She takes care of additional family members (grandchildren whom she pays school fees for). She has a business selling cereals and has been in this business for ten years. She generates additional income through selling piped water and airtime. She works from her home and sells at wholesale only. She has applied for a loan in Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bags of rice. Her major business challenges include seasonality and competition. She aspires to start to import rice herself from Kigumba and also to build rental houses. She resides in her own house and her family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and feeding the family.
