A loan of $1,225 helped to stock more fresh food, like matooke, to cook and sell.


Hellen's story

Hellen is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kubuli, in the Kampala south region of Uganda. For the past 4 years, Hellen has been working hard to manage her small restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Hellen has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more fresh food, like matooke, to cook and sell. It will help Hellen to generate greater profits and to pay for her medical expenses. Hellen hopes that, in the future, she will be able to start up another restaurant.

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