Fatuma's story

Fatuma lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is divorced and has three children, and all of them are attending school. She does not look after any other family members. She stays in her house, which has access to neither electricity nor piped water. Her major monthly expenses include food and school fees.

Fatuma has been selling fish at retail, in the market, for eight years. She works seven days a week. She does not have any other source of income. She has requested for a loan of UGX 300,000 from MCDT-SACCO, to enable her to buy more fish for sale. Her challenges include seasonality. Her dream is to be able to start selling at wholesale. She joined MCDT, because she did not have enough money for meaningful business.
