A loan of $575 helped to purchase more pairs of shoes for resale.

Aisha's story

Aisha is 32 years old and lives in the town of Bungokho in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has four children with three of them currently in school. For the past ten years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her shop, which sells all types of shoes.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more pairs of shoes for resale and will help Aisha to generate greater profits and improve her family's welfare. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to continue to grow her business.

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