Halimah's story

Halima is 30 years old and lives in the town of Lukaya in the Masaka region of Uganda. She has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 5 years, Halima has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which deals in essential commodities. To help expand her business, Halima has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy rice, soap and soda, and will help Halima to generate greater profits and to raise school fees for her children. Halima hopes that in the future she will be able to build rental houses. Halima is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Halima who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
