Mary
Mary is 40 years old and lives in the town of Maganjo in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children with two of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Mary has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells maize flour, sugar and soap, etc..

To help expand her business, Mary has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like maize flour, dry beans, rice, and sugar for resale, and will help Mary to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Mary hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a wholesale shop.

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