Alice is 48 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has eight children, four of whom are currently in school. For the past 10 years, Alice has been working hard to manage her grocery store where she sells sugar, rice, pasho, Pampers, and other general goods.

The loan will be used to buy more cooking oil, sugar, eggs and other foodstuffs and will help Alice to generate greater profits, improve family income and increase capital investment. Alice hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a bigger shop.

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