Anne
Anne is 32 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kampala east region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Anne has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells electrical wires.

To help expand her business, Anne has requested a loan of 3000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy electronic wires for resale, and will help Anne to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Anne hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into wholesale shop.

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