A loan of $200 helped to buy more bales of used clothes to sell.


Jane's story

Jane is widowed, with five children. Four of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (children of her late brother).

Jane has a business of selling second-hand clothes. She has been in this business for eight years. She has applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 (Uganda shillings) from Micro Credit for Development and Transformation SACCO (MCDT SACCO) to buy more bales of used clothes.

Jane works at the market four days a week and she sells on a retail basis only. Her major business challenges include seasonality, thieves, and fire.

She is aspiring to sell on a wholesale basis and also to build her own business premises. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and medication.
