Zamu is 30 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Zamu has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which sells eggs and chickens.

To help expand her business, Zamu has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicken feeds and chicks for her farm, and will help Zamu to generate greater profits and enable her to pay her children's school fees. Zamu hopes that in the future, she will be able to open up a drug shop in her village.

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