Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Constance's story

Constance is 30 years old and is married with a child who is currently in school. She lives in the town of Mbarara, Uganda. For the past three years, Constance has been working hard to manage her retail store where she sells sugar, posho, pads, rice, and sodas.

Constance is requesting a 3,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to help expand her business and buy more soap, Royco, jelly, Vaseline, basins, and sugar. Her loan will help her to generate greater profits and increase the variety of her stock which will increase sales. In the future, Constance hopes that she will be able to own a supermarket.

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