A loan of $1,275 helped to buy more produce for resale.

Okitella's story

Okitella is 33 years old and lives in the town of Tororo in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Okitella has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells produce.

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

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