Gertrude's story

Gertrude is married with four children, and three of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family (her mother). Her business is a shop where she sells to all categories of people on a retail basis only. She has applied for a loan of 2,000,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bags of sugar, cartons of salt, boxes of soap and jerrycans of cooking oil. She generates additional income through farming.

Gertrude works in her shop seven days a week. Her major business challenges include seasonality, transportation and the ever-increasing prices of commodities in Uganda. She is aspiring of becoming a wholesaler and also to own a delivery van to ease transportation. She resides in her own house where the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and paying utility bills.
