A loan of $1,175 helped to buy more clothes and shoes to sell.

Qrusum's story

Qrusum is 45 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, whom are all currently in school. For the past seven years, Qrusum has been working hard to manage her boutique, in which she sells shoes and clothes.

To help expand her business, Qrusum has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes and shoes to sell, and help Qrusum generate greater profits to pay for her children's school fees. Qrusum hopes that in the future she will be able to open a poultry farm.

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