Jane
Jane is 40 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children. Three of them are currently in school. For the past 16 years, Jane has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks.

To help expand her business, Jane has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more drinks like beer and soda for resale, and will help Jane to generate greater profits so as to meet family costs. Jane hopes that in the future she will be able to have the biggest bar with better service.

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