Agnes's story

Agnes is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende, in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is single and has two children. For the past ten years, Agnes has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells sugar, milk, and bread.

To help expand her business, Agnes has requested a loan of UGX 2,500,000 (Ugandan shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items to sell in the store, such as milk, soup, and bread. This will help Agnes to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living. Agnes hopes that, in the future, she will be able to expand her business into a wholesale shop.

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