A loan of $1,000 helped buy chicken feeds and chickens.


Margret's story

Margret is 45 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 6 years, Margret has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, which raises poultry birds.

To help expand her business, Margret has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy chicken feeds and chickens, and will help Margret to generate greater profits and increase family income. Margret hopes that in the future she will be able to buy more layers and broilers.

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