A loan of $825 helped to buy more electrical items like bulbs for resale.

Carolyn's story

Carolyn is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kasubi in the Kampala east region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Carolyn has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells electronic items like energy saver bulbs.

To help expand her business, Carolyn has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more electrical items like bulbs for resale, and will help Carolyn to generate greater profits and manage to build her residential house. Carolyn hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a wholesale electrical shop.

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