Sarah's story

Sarah is 32 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past nine years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her pharmacy which sells drugs.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drugs to sell, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and increase her capital so as to have enough health facilities. Sarah hopes that in the future she will be able to build a very big residential house for herself.

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