A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more hair shampoo and other items for her salon.


Jesca's story

Jesca is 35 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, who are all currently in school. For the past four years, Jesca has been working hard to manage her salon, where she does hair dressing. To help expand her business, Jesca has requested a loan of UGX 2,500,000 from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more hair shampoo and other items for the salon. It will help Jesca to generate greater profits and help her husband in paying their children's school fees. Jesca hopes that in the future she will be able to start another business. Jesca is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Jesca who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
