A loan of $1,075 helped to buy more drinks for resale.

Alice's story

Alice is 32 years old and lives in the town of Soroti in the Soroti region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 6 years, Alice has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks like soda and beer.

To help expand her business, Alice has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks for resale, and will help Alice to generate greater profits and improve on her standards of living. Alice hopes that in the future she will be able to open up more branches of the same business.

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