A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more mattresses and blankets.


Florence's story

Florence is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kabwohe, Uganda. She is married and has three children, with two of them currently in school. For the past ten years, Florence has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells mattresses.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more mattresses and blankets, and will help Florence to generate greater profits and help her live a better life. Florence hopes that in the future she will be able to start a wholesale mattress shop.

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.
