Matilda's story

Matilda is 38 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past four years, Matilda has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells mens and ladies clothing.

To help expand her business, Matilda has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more shoes and clothing to sell, and will help Matilda to generate greater profits which will lead to increased income for her family. Matilda hopes that in the future she will be able to live a good life free from poverty.

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