Sarah, 32, lives in the town of Maganjo in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, three of them currently in school. For the past four years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her mini-supermarket, which sells essential items like bread and milk.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. This loan will be used to buy more commodities to sell in the supermarket and will help Sarah generate greater profits and meet some of her family's basic needs. Sarah hopes that, in the future, she will be able to expand the business into a wholesale shop.

Sarah is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program. This program primarily serves small-enterprise entrepreneurs who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but whose businesses have grown too large for microloans.
