Aisha
Aisha is 48 years old and lives in the town of Ntungamo, Uganda. She is single and has 3 children - 2 of them are currently in school. For the past 15 years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her clothes and garment shop, which sells blankets, bedcovers, and towels.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items like towels, bedcovers, sweaters, and blankets and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and increase the family's income and standard of living. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to keep growing the business.

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 microloans.
