Jennifer's story

Jennifer is 35 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Jennifer has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, maize and other retail products. To help expand her business, Jennifer has requested a loan of 2000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar, maize and other retail products to expand her business and will help Jennifer generate greater profits and pay school fees. Jennifer hopes that in the future she will be able to continue providing for her family. Jennifer is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Jennifer who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
