Robinah is married with three children, and all of her children are in school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members. She has a restaurant and has been in business for five moths now. She has applied for a loan of Ugandan shillings from MCDTSD+SACCO to buy more bunches of green bananas, beef, restaurant chairs, chickens and serving utensils.
Robinah works at the market seven days a week. Her major business challenges include a lack of enough customers, seasonality and defaulters. She resides in her own house, and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees, paying utility bills and feeding the family.
