Catherine
Catherine is 50 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. For the past ten years, Catherine has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, where she raises chickens.

To help expand her business, Catherine has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy poultry feed for the chickens, and it will help Catherine to generate more profit and pay tuition. Catherine hopes that in the future she will be able to have a large poultry farm.

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