Grace's story

Grace is 35 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde, in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past six years, Grace has worked hard to manage her retail shop, which sells general items.

To help expand her business, Grace has requested a loan of three million Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase her inventory, and will help Grace generate greater profits and improve her business.

Grace hopes that in the future she will be able to increase the size of her shop and include many goods so it will make more profits.

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