Eva is 40 years old and lives in the town of Luwero, in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children. For the past 10 years, Eva has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells plastic items.

To help expand her business, Eva has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more plastic items such as thermoses, basins, and plastic plates to sell; it will help Eva to generate greater profits and provide basic needs for her family. Eva hopes that in the future, she will be able to start up a big supermarket in town.

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