Aisha is 25 years old and lives in the town of Nasana in the Kampala east region of Uganda. For the past three years, she has worked hard to manage her salon, where she does hairdressing.
To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use this loan to buy more supplies for her business and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and take care of herself. Aisha hopes that in the future, she will be able to start a training school.
Aisha is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Aisha who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro loans.
