Betty is 40 years old and lives in the town of Masaka in the Masaka region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her bar, where she sells beer, soda and water.
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 beer, soda and water and will help Betty to generate greater profits and expand her business. Betty hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand the bar.
