Judith is 31 years old and lives in the town of Ibanba in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past three years, Judith has been working hard to manage her small milling factory.
To help expand her business, Judith is requesting a 2,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to buy more dry maize for milling. She hopes her loan will generate greater profits.
Judith is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Judith who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
