A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more essential goods like sugar and salt for her general store business.

Aisha's story

Aisha is 40 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala southern region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past two years, Aisha has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells essential commodities.

To help expand her business, Aisha has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential goods such as sugar and salt for the business. The loan will help Aisha to generate greater profits and take good care of her family by providing enough to support their basic needs. Aisha hopes that in the future she will be able to build rental houses.

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 micro loans.
