Dorothy's story

Dorothy is a single mother of four children, all of whom go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (father and mother). She sells fish and has been in this business for 10 years. She has applied for a loan of 400,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more baskets of fish. She does not have any other income generating activities. Her major business challenges include seasonality and defaulters. She works at the market seven days out of every week and sells on a wholesale basis only. She aspires to own more than one stall for selling fish and also to build rental rooms. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees and utility bills.
