Alice is 50 years old and lives in the town of Najjera in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, one currently in school. For the past six years, Alice has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells both alcoholic and soft drinks.
To help expand her business, Alice has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more alcoholic and soft drinks, and will help Alice generate greater profits and expand the business. Alice hopes that in the future, she will be able to improve her standard of living.
