A loan of $1,125 helped to buy charcoal to offer for sale.

Christine's story

Christine, age 41, runs a charcoal sales business. She lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda with her husband and five children. Two of the children are currently enrolled in school. Christine has been running her business for the past five years.

To help expand her business, Christine has requested a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more charcoal to offer for sale, which will in turn help Christine to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Christine hopes to become a powerful local entrepreneur in the future.

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