A loan of $1,225 helped buy more cosmetics.


Teopista's story

Teopista is 28 years old and lives in the town of Wakiso in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past 5 years, Teopista has been working hard to manage her salon, where she plaits and treats hair as well as sells cosmetics.

To help expand her business, Teopista has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cosmetics, and will help Teopista to generate greater profits and expansion in business. Teopista hopes that in the future she will be able to reach a wholesale level.

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