A loan of $775 helped to buy more mattresses for resale.

Rachael's story

Rachael is 40 years old and lives in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has seven children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past twenty years, Rachael has been working hard to manage her store, which sells mattresses and bedding.

To help expand her business, Rachael has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more mattresses for resale, and will help Rachael to generate greater profits and improve the quality of life for her family. Rachael hopes that in the future she will be able to continue growing her business.

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