Deborah is married with six children; four of her children go to school. She also takes care of additional family members (grand children). She has a business of selling fish, and has been in this business for 4 years. She has applied for a loan of 2,500,000 Uganda Shillings from MCDT-SACCO to buy more baskets of fish.
She works at the market seven days out of every week, and sells to all categories of people, but on wholesale basis only. Her major business challenges include transportation and rainy season, which hinder her customers to reach her.
