Betty
Betty is 38 years old and lives in the town of Matuga in the Luweero region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past year, Betty has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells spare parts.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more materials for resale, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and buy food for her family. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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