For the past 4 years, Oliver has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells soap, sugar, milk and bread. To help expand his business, Oliver has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items such as rice, maize flour and soda to sell, and will help Oliver to generate greater profits and pay some of the school fees for her children. Oliver hopes that in the future she will be able to pay school fees for her children. Oliver is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP).
