Juliet's story

Juliet is 35 years old and lives in the town of Bugiri in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past two years, Juliet has been working hard to manage her grocery shop, which sells food and home supplies to local customers.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items like sugar, soap, and rice, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to educate her children to higher levels.

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