A loan of $600 helped to buy more fish and produce for resale.

Teopista's story

Teopista is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in Uganda. She is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past five years, Teopista has been working hard to manage her grocery store, which sells fish, tomatoes, and onions.

To help expand her business, Teopista has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fish and produce for resale, and it will help Teopista to generate greater profits and improve her family's welfare. Teopista hopes that in the future she will be able to start another business.

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