A loan of $200 helped to buy more bales of used clothes to sell.


Florence's story

Florence lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children who are all in school, and she also takes care of two additional family members. She has sold second hand clothes at the market on a retail basis for the last 10 years, working seven days a week. Her major challenges are transportation and seasonality.

Florence has requested a loan of 500,000 Uganda shillings (UGX) from MCDT SACCO. She would like to use it to buy a bale of second hand clothes and shoes. Her aspirations are to start importing used clothes, to support her children's education to university level and also build rental houses. She lives in her own house and the family has access to electricity but does not have access to piped water. Her major expenses each month include feeding the family and school fees.
