A loan of $875 helped to buy more stationary materials.

Betty's story

Betty is 46 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is widowed and has three children; one of them is currently in school. For the past 10 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her stationary shop, which sells books and has a photocopy machine.

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 stationary materials, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Betty hopes that in the future, she will be able to own another branch of the same business.

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