Sarah's story

Sarah is 48 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, with two of them currently in school. For the past five years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells essential goods.


To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more goods like rice, sugar, pasho, and cooking oil, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits. It will help her add more goods to sell and increase her profits. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand her business into a larger supermarket.


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