A loan of $150 helped to buy more bales of used shoes.

Juliet's story

Juliet lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married and has three children, two of whom attend school. She is also looking after her mother. She stays in her husband's house, with access to electricity but no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees.

She has been retailing second-hand shoes in the market for the past two years, working six days a week. She does not have an additional source of income.

Juliet has requested a loan of UGX 400,000 from MCDT-SACCO, to enable her to buy more second-hand shoes for sale. She joined MCDT because she did not have enough capital for her business. Her business challenges include seasonality and hard luck -- when she finds damaged shoes in a bale of shoes she has bought. Her dream is to expand her business and be able to sell whole bales, instead of selling shoes one pair at a time.
