A loan of $1,025 helped to expand the size of her grocery store.


Anna's story

Anna is 30 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past 10 years, Anna has been working hard to manage her grocery, where she sells food stuffs and produce.

To help expand her business, Anna has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase her capital stock, and will help Anna to generate greater profits and to expand the size of her business. Anna hopes that in the future, she will be able to be self-reliant.

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