Mariam's story

Mariam is married with six children; all of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (elderly parents). She has a business of selling used clothes and has been in this business for 20 years, selling to all categories of people on both a retail and wholesale basis six days out of every week at the market. She has applied for a loan of 2,000,000 UGX to buy more bales of used clothing. Her major business challenges include transportation, ever-increasing prices of used clothes, and thieves. She is aspiring to start importing used clothes and also to build more rental rooms. She resides in a rented house and her family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and paying for utility bills.
