Justine is 40 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, of whom one is currently in school. For the past three years, Justine has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells insecticides and pesticides.

To help expand her business, Justine has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more insecticides and fertilizers, and will help Justine to generate greater profits and will increase the family's income. Justine hopes that in the future she will be able to live a good life and be self reliant.

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