A loan of $825 helped to buy more charcoal to resell.

Dorah's story

Dorah is 31 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children with one of them currently in school. For the past three years, Dorah has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells charcoal.

To help expand her business, Dorah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal for resale, and it will help Dorah to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Dorah hopes that in the future, she will be able to build a house.

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