Pollie is 36 years old and lives in the town of Mukono, in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past two years, Pollie has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells scarves, blouses, and baby clothes.

To help expand her business, Pollie has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more new attire, like baby clothes, to add to the store for resale. It will also help Pollie to generate greater profits and provide a higher income for her family. Pollie hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business and start selling in wholesale.

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