Edreda's story

Edreda is 42 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Kasese region of Uganda. She is married, with five children, three of them in school. For the past four years, Edreda has worked hard to manage her electronics business. To help expand her business, Edreda has requested a loan of UGS 4,000,000 from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more electronic equipments. It will help Edreda to generate greater profits and to be able to pay school fees for her children. Edreda hopes that in the future she will become one of the best electronic sellers in town. Edreda is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs, like Edreda, who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
