A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase more cosmetic items like body lotions to sell.

Barbra's story

Barbra is 33 years old and lives in the town of Matugga in the Luwero region of Uganda. She has one child who is currently in school. For the past 8 years, Barbra has been working hard to manage her retail shop selling cosmetic items.

To help expand her business, Barbra has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more cosmetic items like body lotions to sell, and it will help Barbra to generate greater profits and take care of her child and other basic needs. Barbra hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a salon business.

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