A loan of $250 helped to buy more bunches of green bananas.


Harriet's story

Harriet lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is married with three children, all of whom attend school. She is also looking after her mother.

Harriet has been selling green bananas in the market at retail for the last 10 years, working six days a week. She does not have another source of income.

She has requested a loan of UGX 600,000 from MCDT SACCO to enable her buy more bunches of green bananas for sale. Her challenges include seasonality, thieves and transportation. Her dream is to be able to stock at least 20 bunches of bananas per week. She joined MCDT because it was easy for her to do so.

Harriet stays with her husband in a rented house with access to electricity and no piped water. Her major monthly expenses include food, rent and school fees.
