Florence is 50 years old and lives in the town of Kacwamba in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Florence has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells food.
To help expand the business, Florence has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy food to be stocked for the restaurant and will help Florence to generate greater profits and increase on her capital. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to improve on her business.
