Sylvia
Sylvia lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, both currently in school. For the past few years, Sylvia has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells household items and food stuffs.

To help expand her business, Sylvia has requested a loan of 2500000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy drinks and other goods to sell. This will help Sylvia generate greater profits and narrow her capital gap. Sylvia hopes that in the future she will be able to have a wholesale shop.

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