Hajara
Hajara is 37 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has eight children. For the past five years, Hajara has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, where she looks after chicks, raising both layers and boilers.

To help expand her business, Hajara has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to acquire more chicks, and will help Hajara to generate greater profits and buy chicken feed. Hajara hopes that in the future she will be able to construct a bore hole and start another farm of goats.

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