Rebecca is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past 14 years, Rebecca has been working hard to manage her depot, which sells beer and wine.

To help expand her business, Rebecca has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks in bulk to sell, and will help Rebecca to generate greater profits and grow her business with the increased sales. Rebecca hopes that, in the future, she will be able to sell quality products.

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