Charity is 26 years old and lives in the town of Ntungamo in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school.

For the past four years, Charity has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks such as lemonade, spirits, wine and beer.

To help expand her business, Charity has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks such as lemonade, spirits, wine and beer for resale, and will help Charity to generate greater profits and take good care of herself. Charity hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand the business into a bar and lodging.

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