Dizzy is 35 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala south region of Uganda. She is single and has two children. For the past 6 years, Dizzy has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand her business, Dizzy has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Uganda shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar and soap for resale, and will help Dizzy to generate greater profits and buy new clothes for her children. Dizzy hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

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