Jennet is 40 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She has 3 children, with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 7 years, Jennet has been working hard to manage her clothes store, which puts some clothes on the market.

To help expand her business, Jennet has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to bay for more clothes and will help Jennet to generate greater profits and build houses for rental. Jennet hopes that in the future she will be able to have a bigger store.

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