Rose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase more float and to have cashflow for her business.

Rose's story

Rose is 27 years old and lives in the town of Kabuusu in the Makindye region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children. For the past 2 years, Rose has been working hard to manage her mobile money business which does mobile money transactions.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 1,200,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more float and to have cashflow for her business. This will help Rose to generate greater profits and increase and attract more revenue. She will then be able to buy food for her family.

Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to acquire land and build rental houses.

Rose is a member of BRAC's Microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small group members like Rose who do not have collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
