Florence's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more hair oil.
Florence is 40 years old and lives in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. One of the children is currently in school. For the past four years, Florence has been working hard to manage her salon, which provides haircuts and styling for local women. To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more hair oil, which will help Florence generate greater profits and improve her quality of life. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to continue growing her business. Florence is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Florence who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
