Jennifer is 36 years old and lives in the town of Mukono, Uganda. She is married and has 4 children with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Jennifer has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells skirts, blouses and dresses.
To help expand her business, Jennifer has requested a loan of 2500000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a wide variety of clothes to sell, and will help Jennifer to generate greater profits and help run the family's affairs more smoothly. Jennifer hopes that in the future she will be able to continue growing her business.
Jennifer is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Jennifer who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
