A loan of $775 helped to expand her business and buy more electronic items.

Lydia's story

Lydia is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kintintale in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. Lydia has been working hard to manage her electronic store, which deals in all kinds of electronics.

To help expand her business, Lydia has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand her business and buy more electronic items, which will help Lydia generate greater profits and increase her daily sales. Lydia hopes that in the future she will be able to purchase the electronics from China herself.

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