A loan of $1,225 helped to buy more materials to make clothes.


Florence's story

Florence lives in the town of Nansana, in the Kampala West region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, 2 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Florence has been working hard to manage her tailor shop, where she makes sweaters and other clothes.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand the business through buying more materials to make clothes. This will help Florence to generate greater profits after selling more clothes. Florence hopes that, in the future, she will be able to be self reliant.

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