Kotida
Kotida is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, who are all currently in school. For the past 14 years, Kotida has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Kotida has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale, and will help her to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Kotida hopes that in the future she will be able to own a bigger business in town.

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