A loan of $950 helped to build more space for the chicks to grow in.


Lameka's story

Lameka is 49 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi in the Luwero region of Uganda. He is married and has seven children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Lameka has been working hard to manage his poultry farm, which sells chickens.

To help expand his business, Lameka has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to develop the business and build more space for the chicks to grow, and will help Lameka to generate greater profits to improve his standard of living and pay school fees for his children. Lameka hopes that in the future he will be able to expand the poultry farm.

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