A loan of $600 helped to buy more rice and maize flour.

Masimu's story

Masimu is 32 years old and lives in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past four years, Masimu has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells food and home supplies to local customers.

To help expand her business, Masimu has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more rice and maize flour, and will help Masimu to generate greater profits and improve her family's welfare. Masimu hopes that in the future she will be able to have a bigger shop that provides quality goods.

Masimu is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Masimu who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
