For the past three years, Harriet has been working hard to manage her small retail shop, where she rents out space to sell household items. To help expand her business, Harriet has requested a loan in the amount of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds would be used to buy more household items for re-sale purposes. By increasing her inventory, Harriet expects the loan proceeds to help her generate greater profits and pay her children's education fees. In the future, Harriet hopes to be able to continue to increase inventory in her store.
Harriet is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Harriet who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but who have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
