A loan of $800 helped to expand her business by buying more stock.

Aisha's story

Aisha is thirty years old and lives in the town of Namutumba in Uganda. She has four children, three of whom are currently in school. For the past two years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells sugar, milk, and other foodstuffs.

To help expand her business, Aisha is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand her business by buying more stock and help Aisha generate greater profit and increase her income. In the future, Aisha hopes to be able to build a residential/commercial house of her own.

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