A loan of $1,025 helped to stock dry food like rice, maize flour, and beans to cook for resale.


Rose's story

Rose is 45 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children, 2 of whom are currently in school. For the past 5 years, Rose has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock dry food like rice, maize flour, and beans to use for cooking, and will help Rose to generate greater profits, which will buy more dry food like beans. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to own a very big business.

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