Deborah is 33 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children who are both currently in school. For the past 5 years, Deborah has been working hard to manage her salon, where she does hair dressing.
To help expand her business, Deborah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve her business, and will help Deborah to generate greater profits and to increase on her capital size. Deborah hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a branch in town.
Deborah is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Deborah who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
