Jeniva's story

Jeniva is 29 years old, married, and has four children, three of whom attend school. She lives in the town of Arua hill in the Arua region of Uganda. For the past three years, Jeniva has been working hard to manage her hair salon.

To help expand her business, Jeniva is requesting a loan from BRAC Uganda for 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings, which she will use to buy more hair products, such as weaves for styling. The loan will help Jeniva to generate greater profits and improve her family standard of living. Jeniva hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a hair vocational training center.

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