A loan of $1,175 helped to buy maize flour, beans and sugar for the store to sell.

Edithor's story

Edithor is 39-year-old who lives in the town of Matuga in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has 5 children, 4 of whom are currently in school. For the past 5 years, Edithor has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells produce.

To help expand her business, Edithor has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy maize, flour, beans and sugar for the store to sell, and will help Edithor to generate greater profits and buy a refrigerator and expand the business into a bar. Edithor hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business into a whole sale shop.

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