Dorothy's story

Dorothy is 47 years old and lives in the town of Kintintale in the Kampala South region of Uganda. She is widowed and has three children, two of whom are currently in school. Dorothy has been working hard to manage her boutique, in which she sews and sells clothes. To help expand her business, Dorothy has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase rolls of material for making clothes and will help Dorothy to generate greater profits and be able to save. Dorothy hopes that in the future she will be able to enlarge her business. Dorothy is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Dorothy who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
