A loan of $750 helped to buy more poultry feed.


Teopista's story

Teopista is 45 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala north region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 4 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Teopista has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells chicken.

To help expand her business, Teopista has requested a loan of 1,700,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more poultry feed, and will help Teopista to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Teopista hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

Teopista is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP), which 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.
