Majorine is 30 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children; one of them is currently in school. For the past four years, Majorine has been working hard to manage her boutique, where she sells clothes.
To help expand her business, Majorine has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a wider variety of clothes, and will help Majorine to generate greater profits and improve her way of living. Majorine hopes that, in the future, she will be able to be an excellent entrepreneur.
Majorine is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Majorine who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
