A loan of $825 helped to buy more shoes to sell.


Juliet's story

Juliet is 45 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is widowed and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 2 years, Juliet has been working hard to manage her leather shop, which sells leather products like shoes.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more shoes to sell, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits and be able to renovate her rental homes. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to expand to sell all types of shoes.

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