Fatina is 45 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the region surrounding Kampala, Uganda. She is widowed and has 4 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 8 years, Fatina has been working hard to manage her Irish potato business, which sells Irish potatoes wholesale.

To help expand her business, Fatina has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more Irish potatoes for resale, and will help Fatina to generate greater profits and increase her earnings. Fatina hopes that in the future she will be able to have more storage room for the potatoes.

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