Jennifer's story

Jennifer is 52 years old and lives in the town of Packwach in the Arua region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 6 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 20 years, Jennifer has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Jennifer has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh food like Irish potatoes for the restaurant, and will help Jennifer to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Jennifer hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another side business.

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