Sarah
Sarah is 34 years old and lives in the town of Bugiri in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past four years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, salt and cooking oil.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase her stock of essential commodities such as milk, cooking oil and sugar, as well as a fridge to attract more customers. This will help Sarah to generate greater profits and improve her family standards of living and pay for her medical bills. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land.

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