Mwajuma's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to stock more fresh foods for cooking for resale.
Mwajuma is 30 years old and lives in the town of Njeru in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 2 children. For the past 3 years, Mwajuma has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food. To help expand her business, Mwajuma has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more fresh foods for cooking for resale, and will help Mwajuma to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Mwajuma hopes that in the future she will be able to build more rental houses. Mwajuma is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Mwajuma who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
