Margaret's story

Rebecca lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with three children, and one of her children goes to school. She sells charcoal, tomatoes and green bananas at the market on a retail basis. She takes care of three additional family members. She has been in this business for the last 6 years. She works seven days a week. Her major challenges are transportation and seasonality.

She has requested a loan of 200,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT SACCO to buy bags of charcoal and bunches of green bananas. Her aspirations are to become a wholesaler and also to build rental houses. She lives in her own house where the family has no access to piped water or electricity. Her major expenses monthly include school fees and food.
