Zaidha's story

Zaidha is 25 years old and lives in the town of Namutumba in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 1.5 years, Zaidha has been working hard to manage her electronics shop, which sells phones, accessories and video cards. To help expand her business, Zaidha has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more phones to sell, and will help Zaidha to generate greater profits and allow her to build a house. Zaidha hopes that, in the future, she will be able to own a bigger phone shop. Zaidha is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Zaidha who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
