Hajjat's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more essential commodities, such as sugar, for resale,.
Hajjat is 33 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala north region of Uganda. She is married and has 6 children, with 4 of them currently in school. For the past 6 years, Hajjat has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells sugar and soap. To help expand her business, Hajjat has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities, such as sugar, for resale, and will help Hajjat to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Hajjat hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a wholesale shop. Hajjat is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP), which primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Hajjat who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
