Barbra's story

Barbra is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala south region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past six years, Barbra has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells cattle.

To help expand her business, Barbra has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cattle for resale, and will help Barbra to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Barbra hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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