Samalie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more coffee and maize seeds to plant to resell.

Samalie's story

Samali is 22 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kawempe region of Uganda. She has 2 children who are all currently in school. For the past 1 years, Samali has been working hard to manage her Catering, which sells snacks. To help expand her business, Samali has requested a loan of 1700000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to add more items for the snack business like Irish potatoes, cooking oil etc., and will help Samali to generate greater profits and manage to buy food for her family. Samali hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a house of her own. Samalie is a member of BRAC's Microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small Group members like Samalie who do not have collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
