A loan of $800 helped to buy clothes to offer for sale.

Stella's story

Stella, age 40, runs a boutique shop where she sells clothing items to earn a living. She has operated her business for the past 20 years. She lives in the town of Kijura in the Hoima region of Uganda with her husband and their two children, both of whom are currently attending school.

To help expand her business, Stella has requested a loan in the amount of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell in her shop. This will help Stella to generate greater profits and pay some of her children's school fees. Stella hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a bigger shop.

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