Cissy's story

Cissy is 50 years old and lives in the town of Najera in the Kampala south region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 4 children. For the past 3 years, Cissy has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand her business, Cissy has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more essential commodities, and will help Cissy to generate greater profits and increase her stock. Cissy hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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