Stella
Stella is 41 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 10 years, Stella has been working hard to manage her bar where she sells beer, soda, and water.

To help expand her business, Stella has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more soda and local beer and will help Stella to generate greater profits and increase the family income. Stella hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand her bar.

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