A loan of $825 helped to buy more Irish potatoes.


Hanifa's story

Hanifa is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is single and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past 10 years, Hanifa has been working hard to manage her business selling tomatoes and Irish potatoes.

To help expand her business, Hanifa has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to to buy more Irish potatoes, and will help Hanifa to generate greater profits which will be used to pay school fees. Hanifa hopes that in the future she will be able to to own a grocery.

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