Immaculate's story

Immaculate is 28 years old and lives in the town of Mattuga in the Kawempe region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, Immaculate has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells essential items like sugar, salt, cooking oil, and soft drinks.

To help expand her business, Immaculate has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more sacks of sugar, salt, and maize flour for sale. It will help Immaculate to generate greater profits, manage to repay the loan in time, and also provide her family with enough basic needs.

Immaculate hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a residential house for herself.

Immaculate is a member of BRAC's Microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small group members like Immaculate who do not have collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
