Birabwa
Birabwa is 30 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children, with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, Birabwa has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand her business, she has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like sugar for resale, and will help her to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. She hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a mini-supermarket.

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