Ruth
Ruth is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past seven years, Ruth has been working hard to manage her small shop where she sells hardware.

To help expand her business, Ruth has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda to purchase supplies and materials. Her loan will help her generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Ruth hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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