Jackie's story

Jackie is 38 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has 2 children. One of them currently attends school. For the past 3 years, Jackie has been working hard to manage her salon, which does hair dressing.

To help expand her business, Jackie has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more salon items, like cosmetics and hair waves, and will help Jackie to generate greater profits and increase her income. Jackie hopes that in the future she will be able to live a good life.

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