Mable is 47 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past 10 years, Mable has been working hard to manage her grocery, where she sells general foods like eggs and water.
To help expand her business, Mable has requested a loan of 2500000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more stock like bread and oil to sell, and will help Mable to generate greater profits, grow her business and attract more customers. Mable hopes that in the future she will be able to start selling bananas.
Mable is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Mable who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
