Maria
Maria is 32 years old and lives in the town of Mubende in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children, with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Maria has been working hard to manage her tailoring shop, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Maria has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more materials for making clothes to sell. This will help Maria to generate greater profits. Already, she has managed to complete her mother's house. Maria hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a tailoring training center.

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