Hadjah's story

Hadjah operates a food stall business to earn her living. She has run her business for 10 years, selling her wares from her home on a retail basis seven days a week. Her major business challenges include seasonality and thieves. Her food stall is her sole income-generating activity.

Hadjah and her husband have six children, five of whom attend school. She also takes care of grandchildren. The family resides in a rented house and has access to electricity but not to piped water. Their monthly expenses include school fees and rent.

Hadjah has applied for a loan in the amount of 1,600,000 Uganda shillings from MCDT-SACCO. She decided to join MCDT-SACCO because of its good customer care. She will use her loan funds to buy cassava, banana fingers, tomatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, cabbages, and eggplants.

Hadjah aspires toward eventually becoming a wholesaler. She also has a goal of buying a plot of land where she can build a house for her family.
