Mary's story

Mary is 31 years old and lives in the town of Najera in Uganda. She is married and has three children, with two of them currently in school. Mary has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells milk and bread.

To help expand her business, Mary has requested a loan from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase stock in the business with items such as packed juice, sugar and soap for resale, and will help Mary to generate greater profits and have a better source of income. Mary hopes that in the future, she will be able to open a wholesale shop.

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