The loan will be used to buy more salon items, like cosmetics and hair waves, and will help Jackie to generate greater profits and increase her income. Jackie hopes that in the future she will be able to live a good life.

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