Ketty is 49 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. For the past four years, Ketty has been working hard to manage her small shop in which she sells clothes.
To help expand her business, Ketty has requested a loan of 2500000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fashionable clothes for resale and will help Ketty to generate greater profits, take good care of herself, and pay for her medical bills. Ketty hopes that in the future she will be able to own another clothing business in town.
Ketty is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs, like Ketty, who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro-loans.
