A loan of $1,025 helped to stock more items for resale.


Florence's story

Florence is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in Uganda. She is married and has five children, four of whom are currently in school. For the past three years, Florence has been working hard to manage her small shop, where she sells hardware.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 2,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more items for resale. This will help Florence to generate greater profits and pay the school fees for her children. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another hardware business.

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