Diana's story

Diana is 21 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past four years, Diana has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, milk and bread.

To help expand her business, Diana has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items such as milk, soup and bread for the store to sell. This will help Diana to generate greater profits and complete her parents residential house. Diana hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business into a wholesale shop.

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