Mariana is 45 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children. One attends school.

For the past 7 years, Mariana has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells saucepans, juice, cosmetics, rice and other goods.

To help expand her business, Mariana has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy rice, posho, biscuits and other goods to sell, and will help Mariana generate greater profits.

Mariana hopes that in the future she will be able to set up a very good and well stocked supermarket and add a wholesale business.

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