A loan of $800 helped to buy more chemicals for resale.

Apophia's story

Apophia is 26 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi, in the Luweero region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past year, Apophia has been working hard to manage her agro shop, which sells agro chemicals.

To help expand her business, Apophia has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chemicals for resale, and will help Apophia to generate greater profits and increase more on her business. Apophia hopes that in the future she will be able to open another shop of the same business.

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