Twaha's story

Twaha is 49 years old and lives in the town of Bombo in the Luwero region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children. For the past 12 years, Twaha has been working hard to manage his boutique, which sells clothes.

To help expand his business, Twaha has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy shoes, shirts and trousers for resale and will help Twaha to generate greater profits and provide for family needs like buying food and paying medical expenses. Twaha hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business by adding diverse items that will attract more customers and earn more profits.

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