Grace is 32 years old and lives in the town of Fort Portal in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children who are all currently in school. For the past 4 years, Grace has been working hard to manage her produce business, which sells produce items.
To help expand her business, Grace has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more ground nuts, beans, and flour, and it will help Grace to generate greater profits and improve her livelihood. Grace hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.
