A loan of $775 helped to buy more fresh fish for reselling.

Rose's story

Rose is 32 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde in the Mbarara region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children who are currently in school. For the past 4 years Rose has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells fresh food.

To help expand her business, Rose has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more fresh fish for reselling, and will help Rose to generate greater profits to pay school fees and cover her family's basic needs. Rose hopes that in the future she will be able to own the biggest fish selling market.

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