A loan of $550 helped to purchase more supplies to make bricks.

Irene's story

Irene is 30 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala region of Uganda. For the past three years, Irene has been working hard to manage her bricklaying business, which sells bricks for local construction projects.

To help expand her business, Irene has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more supplies to make bricks, and will help Irene to generate greater profits and improve her family's quality of life. Irene hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a daycare center.

Irene is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Irene who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
