Kobusingye Cissy Group's story

Cissy K. is 30 years of age and married with three children who are between the ages of 9 and 13. She rents the place in which she resides with her family. They have three meals a day and her greatest expense in a month is feeding the family.

Cissy is a shop attendant and this is how she earns her living. She works seven days a week and she normally receives 20 customers a day. She has been doing this for over three years now and prior to this she was selling used clothes. The challenge she meets is that every morning she has to spend money on transport. On days she doesn’t have transport money, she must walk to her workplace, which is about three miles away from her home.

She has worked with MCDT for five years now and chose to work with MCDT because she finds it easy to understand the way they operate. She will use this loan to pay school fees for her children and also use some of it to pay for rent. She also wants to start up her own business.
