Victo's story

Victo is the widowed mother of four children, two of whom attend school. She also takes care of additional family members. For the last six years, she has earned a living by working as a tailor and selling her goods on a retail basis. She earns additional income by selling piped water. She sells her goods at a local market, and is applying for a loan for 1,700,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more rolls of cloth, thread and an electric sewing machine. Her major business challenges include transportation and the seasonal nature of the demand for her products. Her goal for the future is to own a tailoring school and employ two girls to help her with her tailoring work. She resides in her own house where her family has no access to piped water but has electricity. Her major monthly expenses include food and electricity.
