Florence
Florence is 38 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is single and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 15 years, Florence has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 3000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale, and will help Florence to generate greater profits and pay for her children's school fees. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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