A loan of $800 helped to buy more iron sheets, wire mesh, rings and cement.

Annet's story

Annet is 40 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Kasangati region of Uganda. She is single and has one child who is currently in school. For the past four years, Annet has been working hard to manage her hardware shop, which sells cement, iron sheets and bars.

To help expand her business, Annet has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more iron sheets, wire mesh, rings and cement, and will help Annet to generate greater profits, improve her standards of living, and pay for family necessities. Annet hopes that in the future she will be able to build up a permanent house on her mortgage.

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