A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase more human medicine and cosmetics to sell.


Faridah's story

Faridah is 29 years old and lives in the town of Bulenga in the region of Kampala North in Uganda. She is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past seven years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her drug shop, which sells human medicine and cosmetics.

To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more human medicine and cosmetics for sale, and will help Faridah to generate greater profits and growth in business. Faridah hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business.

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