Anna's story

Anna is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in Uganda. She is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past fifteen years, Anna has been working hard to manage her bar which serves drinks and sodas to local customers. To help expand her business, Anna has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more crates of beer and soda, and will help Anna to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Anna hopes that in the future she will be able to open another bar. Anna is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Anna who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
