Betty is 33 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi, in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her retail store, which sells a wide range of things like electronics and everyday necessities.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items like pampers and electrical wires, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and be more self-reliant. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to have other stores within her area.

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