Rehema is 49 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, with none of them currently in school. For the past 8 years, Rehema has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells toilet paper, sugar, pens and other essential items. To help expand her business, Rehema has requested for a loan of 4,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. This loan will be used to purchase more toilet paper, sugar, pens and other essential items, which will help Rehema to generate greater profits and increase her working capital. Rehema hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a supermarket.
