For the past seven years, Betty has been working hard to manage her stationary and printing business, where she sells exercise books and provides printing and photocopy services. To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan in the amount of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds would be used to buy another printer and computers, and should help Betty generate greater profits to allow her to continue to increase and improve her fixed assets like printers. In the future, Betty hopes to be able to start a computer training center.
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 who have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
