Dorothy's story

Dorothy is 40 years old and lives in the town of Mpigi in Kampala north region of Uganda. She is married and has six children, two of them are currently in school. For the past 13 years, Dorothy has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks like soda and beer.

To help expand her business, Dorothy has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essentials like soda and beer for resale and will help her to generate greater profit and pay for some basic needs like food for her family. Dorothy hopes that in the future she will be able to increase profits.

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