Musitulia is 46 years old and lives in the town of Mukono, in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has four children. For the past 6 years, Musitulia has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells prepared food.
To help expand her business, Musitulia has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more food, spoons, and glasses for the restaurant. This will help Musitulia to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. She hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a big hotel.
Musitulia is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Musitulia who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
