A loan of $1,025 helped to buy more chicks and poultry feed.

Ritah's story

Ritah is 32 years old and lives in the town of Zana in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Ritah has been working hard to manage her poultry business, which sells eggs.

To help expand her business, Ritah has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks and poultry feed, and will help Ritah to generate greater profits which will help her add on to her poultry farm. Ritah hopes that in the future she will be able to continue to educate her kids.

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