A loan of $825 helped to purchase more silver fish to sell.


Grace's story

Grace is 43 years old and lives in the town of Arua in the Arua region of Uganda. She is widowed and has five children, four of whom are currently in school. For the past five years, Grace has been working hard to manage her silver fish-selling business.

To help expand her business, Grace has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings through BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more silver fish to sell, and will help Grace to generate greater profits by purchasing more items to sell. Grace hopes that, in the future, she will be able to expand the business further.

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