Stella
Stella is 34 years old and lives in the town of Wakiso in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, one currently in school. For the past five years, Stella has been working hard to manage her hardware shop, which sells building materials.

To help expand her business, Stella has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy cement, hoes, wire, paint and other items, and will help Stella generate greater profits and expand the business. Stella hopes that in the future she will be able to increase her capital use.

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