A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more medicine for resale.

Damalie's story

Damalie is 38 years old and lives in the town of Buwenge in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is married and has 7 children with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 8 years, Damalie has been working hard to manage her clinic, which provides basic health services and sells medicine.

To help expand her business, Damalie has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more medicine for resale, and will help Damalie to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Damalie hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house of her own.

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