Winnie is 27 years old and is married with four children, three of whom are currently in school. She lives in the town of Arua Hill in the Arua region of Uganda. For the past five years, Winnie has been working hard to manage her small business where she sells silver fish.
Winnie is requesting a 2,000,000 UGX to purchase more silver fish to resell. This will help to generate greater profits to buy food to feed her family and expand her business. In the future, she hopes that her business will continue to expand.
Winnie is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). This program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Winnie who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
