Lydia's story

Lydia is 28 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She has three children, all of whom are currently in school. For the past seven years, Lydia has been working hard to manage her hairdressing salon. To help expand her business, Lydia is requesting a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase hair waves and relaxers for her salon. The loan will help Lydia to generate greater profits and improve her family's living situation. In the future, Lydia hopes to open another salon in town. Lydia is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Lydia who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
