Rebecca
Rebecca is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kamuli in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past 11 years, Rebecca has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells spare parts.

To help expand her business, Rebecca has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy new spare parts for resale, and will help Rebecca to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Rebecca hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house of her own.

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