Patricia's story

Patricia, a 35-year-old single mother of two children, both currently in school, lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past six years, Patricia has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells food and soft drinks.



Patricia has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to improve the business and buy more soft drinks to sell. This will help her to generate greater profits, expand the restaurant, and look after her family more effectively. Patricia hopes that in the future she will be able to start another business.



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