Hawa is 39 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 6 years, Hawa has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells household commodities.
To help expand her business, Hawa has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more household commodities, and will help Hawa to generate greater profits and increase her profit margin. Hawa hopes that, in the future, she will be able to have a big business.
