A loan of $125 helped to buy more bunches of sweet bananas.


Aisha's story

Aisha lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children, and none of them attend school. She does not look after any other family members.

She has been selling sweet bananas in the market at wholesale for ten years and has no other source of income. She has requested a loan of 300,000 Ugandan shillings from MCDT-SACCO to enable her buy more bunches of yellow bananas to sell.

Her challenges include seasonality. Her dream is to expand her business to another market. She joined MCDT because of the relatively low interest charged on loans. She lives in a rented house with access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees and rent.
