Mercy's story

Mercy is 38 years old and lives in the town of Ibanda in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. She has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Mercy has been working hard to manage her small business, where she sells skirts, tops, trousers, and dresses. To help expand her business, Mercy has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more dresses and skirts in specific colors and cuts. It will help Mercy to generate greater profits and increase the range of her inventory to attract customers. Mercy hopes that in the future she will be able to open another boutique. Mercy is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Mercy who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but whose businesses have grown too large for microloans.
