Ronah is 27 years old and lives in the town of Kabwohe in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Ronah has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes.
To help expand her business, Ronah has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy clothes for sale, and will help Ronah to generate greater profits and buy new clothes for herself and pay her medical bills. Ronah hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big restaurant in town.
Ronah is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Ronah who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
