Asha's story

Asha is 40 years old and lives in the town of Bugembe in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is married and has 5 children, with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, she has been working hard to manage her retail shop which sells sugar, salt, posho, rice, sodas, water, flour, sweets and other items. To help expand the business, Asha has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar, salt, posho, rice, sodas, water, flour, sweets and other items, and will help her to generate greater profits and increase stock in the shop. She hopes that in the future she will be able to open another business with clothes and bags.
