Sarah
Sarah is 32 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, two of whom currently attend school. For the past four years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells stationery supplies.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase papers and pens to sell in her shop, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and pay her family's bills. Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another stationery shop on the other side of town.

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