A loan of $1,225 helped to purchase more herbal medicine for resale.


Efuransi's story

Efuransi is 36 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is widowed and has four children, three of whom are currently in school. For the past 12 years, Efuransi has been working hard to manage her clinic where she sells herbal medicine.

To help expand her business, Efuransi has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more herbal medicine for resale, and will help Efuransi to generate greater profits and to increase the quality of services. Efuransi hopes that in the future she will be able to be self-reliant.

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