To help expand her business, Beatrice is requesting a loan from BRAC Uganda for 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings, which she will use to buy more household materials. This loan will help Beatrice to generate greater profits and pay her children's school fees. Beatrice hopes that in the future she will be able to complete her residential house.

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