Rose is 29 years old and lives in Mukono, Uganda. She is single and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 8 years, Rose has been working hard to manage her boutique where she sells women’s clothing.
Rose has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from Kiva partner BRAC Uganda to help expand her business. She will use the loan to buy materials to make more blouses and suits for sale. The increase in clothing stock will help Rose to generate greater profits and change her family's life. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to have a big business.
Rose is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Rose who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
