A loan of $825 helped to buy more clothes for resale.


Shamura's story

Shamura is 24 years old and lives in the town of Tororo in the Mbale region of Uganda. For the past two years, she has been working hard to manage her small business selling clothes.

To expand her business, Shamura has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from Kiva field partner BRAC Uganda. She plans to use the loan to buy more clothes such as jeans and shirts. Shamura hopes this will help to generate greater profits.

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