Jenny is 34 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in Uganda. She is married and has two children, currently in school.
For the past 13 years, Jenny has been working hard to manage her clothing business, which sells all types of clothes.
To help expand her business, Jenny has requested a loan of UGX 2,500,000 from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used for a capital increment and to buy more clothes. It will help Jenny to generate greater profits, and she will be able to pay school fees for her two children with time.
Jenny hopes that in the future she will be able to have many businesses in Mbale.
Jenny is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Jenny who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
