Beatrice's story

Beatrice is 34 years old and lives in the town of Fort Portal in Uganda. She is married and has 2 children who are all currently in school. For the past 5 years, Beatrice has been working hard to manage her grocery store.

To help expand her business, Beatrice has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase food for resale, and will help Beatrice to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Beatrice hopes that in the future she will be able to own a large shop.

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