A loan of $825 helped to buy more charcoal for resale.


Zaina's story

Zaina is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kititale in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is single and has two children. For the past six years, Zaina has been working hard to manage her charcoal sales business.

To help expand her small business, Zaina has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal for resale. This will help Zaina generate greater profits. Zaina hopes she will be able to open another charcoal sales store in the future.

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