A loan of $950 helped to buy stock of women's clothing to expand her options.


Regina's story

Regina is 32 years old and lives in the town of Busia in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is married and has 6 children, 5 of them are currently in school. For the past 4 years, Regina has been working hard to manage her clothes store, which sells men's outfits.

To help expand her business, Regina has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to start trading in women’s clothing, and will help Regina to generate greater profits and educate her children. Regina hopes that in the future she will be able to improve on her standard of living.

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