A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase more charcoal.

Maclean's story

Maclean is 32 years old and lives in the town of Ggaba in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past four years, Maclean has been working hard to manage her charcoal business.

To help expand her business, Maclean has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more charcoal, and will help Maclean to generate greater profits and restock more charcoal. Maclean hopes that in the future, she will be able to open up another bar business.

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