Senabulya is 34 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the region of Kampala East in Uganda. She is married and has four children, three of whom are currently in school. For the past five years, Senabulya has been working hard to manage her salon, which deals in hair dressing and the sale of cosmetics.
To help expand her business, Senabulya has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a central dryer and finish her commercial building. It will enable Senabulya to generate greater profits and generate a family income for her children's upkeep and school fees. Senabulya hopes that in the future, she will be able to boost her business.
Senabulya is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Senabulya who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
