Madina is 25 years old and lives in the town of Fortportal in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past three years, Madina has been working hard to manage her retail shop in which sells sugar, salt, and cooking oil.

To help expand her business, Madina has requested a loan of 2000000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities such as milk, cooking oil, sugar, and salt for resale and will help Madina to generate greater profits and pay for family medical expenses and food. Madina hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another retail shop in town.

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