Bashir is 40 years old and lives in the town of Zana in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has 3 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, Bashir has been working hard to manage his hair dressing saloon. To help expand his business, Bashir has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. This loan will be used to buy more relaxers and dryers, which will help Bashir to generate greater profits and cater for all his neccesities. Bashir hopes that in the future, he will be able to build a residential house.
