A loan of $550 helped to purchase a roll of second-hand clothes.

Jessica's story

Jessica is 41 years old and lives in the town of Luwero in the Luweero region of Uganda. She is married and has 5 children; 2 are currently in school. For the past 7 years, Jessica has been working hard to manage her small boutique, which sells clothes and beauty supplies.

To help expand her business, Jessica has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase a roll of second-hand clothes, and will help Jessica to generate greater profits and improve the standards of living for her family. Jessica hopes that in the future she will be able to continue to grow her business.

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