Amina is 40 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 5 years, Amina has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Amina has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes that will be sold, and will help Amina to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Amina hopes that in the future she will be able to open another business in town.

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