Nakatudde is 32 years old, and she lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Kasangati region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, three of them in school.

For the past 15 years, Nakatudde has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells bread, sugar, rice, and other household staples.

To help expand her business, Nakatudde has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more retail items to sell, like sugar, rice, and salt. It will help Nakatudde generate greater profits and pay for school fees and basic necessities at home.

Nakatudde hopes that in the future she will be able to start a wholesale shop.

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