Rossette is 41 years old and lives in the town of Fortportal in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has two children with none of them currently in school. For the past three years, Rossette has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells bed covers, pillows, door mats, etc.
To help expand her business, Rossette has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more bags, clothes, and pillows and will help Rossette to generate greater profits and add to her stock. Rossette hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.
