A loan of $650 helped to buy food for resale.

Amina's story

Amina is 38-years-old and lives in the town of Namutuba in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has 6 children with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Amina has been working hard to manage her restaurant, where she sells food.

To help expand her business, Amina has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy food for resale, and will help Amina to generate greater profits and improve her family’s standard of living. Amina hopes that in the future she will be able to complete her house.

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