Faridah
Faridah is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells different kinds of beers and sodas.

To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more crates of beer and soda, and will help Faridah to generate greater profits and improve her family's welfare. Faridah hopes that in the future she will be able to start another business.

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