Jalia's story

Jalia lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with four children, all of whom attend school. She is also looking after two sisters. Jalia has been selling secondhand clothing from the market at retail for seven years, working seven days a week. She generates additional income from poultry farming. She has requested a loan of UGX 2,000,000 from MCDT- SACCO to be able to purchase more bales of dresses, jackets, and blouses for adults for selling. Her business challenges include seasonality and transportation. Her dreams are to grow her business to the wholesale level, to see her children through to university, and also to build her own house. Jalia joined MCDT-SACCO because of timely loans. She lives in a rented house without access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include school fees, transport, and rent.
