A loan of $750 helped to stock food and buy tables for her restaurant.


Naku's story

Naku is 35 years old and lives in the town of Matuga, in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are currently in school. For the past ten years, Naku has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Naku has requested a loan of UGX 2,000,000 (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock food and buy tables for the restaurant and will help Naku to generate greater profits and improve on the economic status of her family. Naku hopes that, in the future, she will be able to open up another restaurant.

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