Rose
Rose is 42 years old and lives in the town of Bombo in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is single and has four children with two of them currently in school. For the past 18 years, Rose has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells food.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase the size of the business and have more space for her customers to sit, and will help Rose to generate greater profits and purchase foods at a lower price and in higher quantity. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business.

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