Isaa is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has no children. For the past 5 years, Isaa has been working hard to manage his charcoal business, where he resells charcoal. To help expand his business, Isaa has requested for a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. This loan will be used to purchase more charcoal, and will help Isaa to generate greater profits from his business. Isaa hopes that in the future he will be able to employ more people to help him with his business.
