Harriet is 34 years old and lives in the town of Kijura in the region of Hoima in Uganda. She is married and has three children with two of them currently in school. For the past three years, Harriet has been working hard to manage her produce business, which deals in produce.

To help expand her business, Harriet has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more seeds for produce and will help Harriet to generate greater profits and expand on the business. She hopes that in the future she will be able to increase her income.

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