A loan of $1,025 helped buy more inputs like toilet paper and clothing to sell in her business.


Sawuga's story

Sawuga is 45 years old and lives in the town of Mpigi in the Kampala North region of Uganda. She is married and has 10 children, 1 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Sawuga has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells general home use items and clothing.

To help expand her business, Sawuga has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more inputs like toilet paper and clothing to sell in her business. This will help Sawuga to generate greater profits and expand her business through increased supplies. Sawuga hopes that, in the future, she will be able to increase her customer base.

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