Enid is 46 years old and lives in the town of Fortportal in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children. For the past 19 years, Enid has been working hard to manage her small shop, which sells clothes.
To help expand her business, Enid has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fashionable clothes that will be sold in the festive season, and will help Enid to generate greater profits and improve on her family's standard of living and pay for her medical bills. Enid hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a big and well known whole sale shop in town.
Enid is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Enid who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro-loans.
