A loan of $825 helped to buy more drinks.

Hasifa's story

Hasifa is 52 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 8 children. For the past 10 years, Hasifa has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells soda, beer and waragi.

To help expand her business, Hasifa has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand her business by buying more drinks, and will help Hasifa to generate greater profits and increase her stock. Hasifa hopes that in the future she will be able to open up more bars.

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