In brief: Many reasons

There are many reasons that can cause a UTI from hygiene, untreated uti, colonization of bacteria, systemic disease, foreign body, holding urine, unnatural connection between urethra to anus (fistua formation), thong underwear, tb, and others.
A frequent UTI may also not be a uti, but interstitial cystitis. You complete tests to rule out the other causes.
