Sarah's story

Sarah is 39 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her school, which has a nursery and primary school.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more furniture for the school, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and increase and improve on the standard of living for her family. Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a secondary school.

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