Allen
Allen is 33 years old and lives in the town of Kasubi in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Allen has been working hard to manage her produce business, which sells beans, maize, and rice.

To help expand her business, Allen has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy beans, maize, and rice. This will help Allen to generate greater profits and increase her family business. Allen hopes that in the future she will be able to open another shop.

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