A loan of $775 helped to buy more items for her pharmacy such as pampers, cotton wool, Panadol, and Septrin for patients.

Caroline's story

Caroline is 37 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa, in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Caroline has been working hard to manage her pharmacy, which sells drugs.

To help expand her business, Caroline has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items such as Pampers, cotton wool, Panadol, and Septrin for patients, and will help Caroline to generate greater profits and pay for her children's school fees. Caroline hopes that in the future she will be able to start up another drugshop within town.

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