Rose
Rose is 29 years old and lives in the town of Mubende, in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past four years, Rose has been working hard to manage her clothing store, where she sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more trousers, shirts and skirts for sale. This will help Rose to generate greater profits and finish her rental houses. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business into a wholesale shop.

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