Marion
Marion is 35 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, with one of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Marion has been working hard to manage her poultry business, which rears chickens.

To help expand her business, Marion has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicks, and will help Marion to generate greater profits and improve her savings. Marion hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a large firm.

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