Consolate is 48 years old and lives in the town of Kijura in the Luweero region of Uganda. She is married and has five children. For the past ten years, Consolate has been working hard to manage her dairy farm, which sells milk produced by her cows.
To help expand her business, Consolate has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cows to produce milk for resale and will help Consolate generate increased profits and buy food to feed her family. Consolate hopes that in the future she will be able to construct a large cattle ranch.
Consolate is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Consolate who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
