A loan of $1,125 helped to buy more clothes for resale.

Asuwa's story

Asuwa is 35 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa, in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has six children, four of them currently in school. For the past five years, Asuwa has been working hard to manage her clothing shop, which makes and sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Asuwa has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use the loan to buy more clothes to resell, which will help Asuwa to generate greater profits and pay her children's school fees. Asuwa hopes that in the future she will be able to own a bigger shop that sells clothes in town.

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