A loan of $725 helped to purchase more medicine for resale.


Berna's story

Berna is 39 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala South region of Uganda. For the past 10 years, Berna has been working hard to manage her clinic, which offers health services.

To help expand her business, Berna has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more medicine for resale and will help Berna generate greater profits and sustain her family. Berna hopes that, in the future, she will be able to build her own hospital.

Berna is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Berna who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
