Nadia
Nadia is 30 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Nadia has been working hard to manage her salon, where she cuts and styles hair.

To help expand her business, Nadia has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cosmetics to sell, and will help Nadia to generate greater profits and pay school fees. Nadia hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another salon.

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