Salome is 43 years old and lives in the town of Nebbi, in the Arua region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 5 children, with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Salome has been working hard to manage her small second-hand business, which sells clothing for children and adults.

To help expand her business, Salome has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more bails of different types of clothing, and will help Salome to generate greater profits and get her other children in school. Salome hopes that in the future she will be able to buy more clothing in all sizes.

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