Betty
Betty is 30 years old and lives in the town of Bulenga in the region of Kampala north in Uganda. She is married and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 7 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, in which she deals in the sale and rearing of birds.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks and feed and will help Betty to generate greater profits and growth in business thereby allowing her to pay school fees for her children. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big poultry farm.

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