A loan of $575 helped to purchase more ingredients to distill a traditional Ugandan drink called Waragi.

Kolin's story

Kolin is 48 years old and lives in the town of Bungokho in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has five children, four of whom are currently in school. For the past fourteen years, Kolin has been working hard to manage her distillery, in which she makes a traditional Ugandan drink called Waragi.

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

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