Hannifah lives in the town of Kasangati in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is married and has five children, all currently in school. For the past five years, Hannifah has been working hard to manage her poultry business, selling chickens and eggs.
To help expand her business, Hannifah has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more feed for the chickens. This will help Hannifah generate greater profits and increase her chicken count which improves egg sales. Hannifah hopes that in the future she will be able to eradicate poverty.
Hannifah is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Hannifah who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
