A loan of $850 helped to buy more chickens for resale.

Betty's story

Betty is 47 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is single and has 7 children, 2 of whom are currently in school. For the past 5 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her poultry farm, where she raises and sells chickens.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chickens for resale and will help Betty to generate greater profits and improve her business. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to open up more structures for poultry.

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