A loan of $1,225 helped to buy more electrical items like electric wires for resale.

Ritah's story

Ritah is 32 years old and lives in the town of Kasagati in the Kampala east region of Uganda. She is single and has 2 children who are both currently in school. For the past 6 years, Ritah has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells electrical items like electric wires.

To help expand her business, Ritah has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more electrical items like electric wires for resale, and will help Ritah to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Ritah hopes that in the future she will be able to increase more stock in her business.

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