Sylvia
Sylvia is 47 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has six children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past four years, Sylvia has been working hard to manage her retail shop which sells sugar, soap and salt.

To help expand her business, Sylvia has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy essential commodities like sugar and salt for resale, and will help Sylvia to generate greater profits and pay her child's school fees. Sylvia hopes that in the future she will be able to open a boutique business.

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