Harriet
Harriet is 40 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Harriet has been working hard to manage her pharmacy, which sells drugs.

To help expand her business, Harriet has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drug store items such as Pampers, cotton wool, Panadol and Septrine for pediatrics, and will help Harriet to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Harriet hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big retail shop.

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