Aisha
Aisha is 40 years old and lives in the town of Nateete, in the region of Kampala west, in Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, 3 of them currently in school. For the past 8 years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her business, which sells timber.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase inventory, and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and have more capital. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to have various branches of her 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 micro-loans.
