A loan of $825 helped to buy saucepans and tables.

Esther's story

Esther is 38 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, Esther has been working hard to manage her restaurant, where she makes traditional Ugandan cuisine.

To help expand her business, Esther has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy saucepans and tables, and will help Esther to generate greater profits and increase the amount of food she can make. Esther hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a bigger restaurant.

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