Hope
Hope is 41 years old and lives in the town of Maganjo in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Hope has been working hard to manage her poultry farm.

To help expand her business, Hope has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more chicken feed for the farm and will help Hope to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children and build rental houses. Hope believes that in the future she will be able to add more chickens to the farm to expand it more.

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