A loan of $200 helped to buy more food items, like banana fingers, clusters, onions, cabbages, and Irish potatoes.


Cissy's story

Cissy lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children, and all of them are attending school. She is not looking after any additional family members.

Cissy has been operating a food stall for the last eight years, working seven days a week. This is her only source of income. She has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings (USh) from MCDT- SACCO to enable her to purchase more raw ingredients for foodstuffs, like banana fingers, clusters, onions, tomatoes, cabbages, and Irish potatoes. Her business challenges include seasonality and transport.

Cissy's dream is to own a fully-stocked food stall and also to build her own house. She joined MCDT because of the small loans it gives, allowing members to gradually grow their businesses. She lives with her husband in a rented house without access to electricity or piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
