Teopista's story

Teopista is 40 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is widowed and has five children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Teopista has been working hard to manage her small business selling clothes.

To help expand her business, Teopista has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell and will help Teopista to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Teopista hopes that in the future, she will be able to start up a wholesale shop.

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