A loan of $1,225 helped to buy clothes for resale.


Shakirah's story

Shakirah is 32 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is single and has one child, who is currently in school. For the past five years, Shakirah has been working hard to manage her small business selling clothes.

To help expand her business, Shakirah has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale. The profits this generates will help Shakirah to pay school fees for her child.

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