A loan of $975 helped to expand on her produce business and add more sacks of beans and rice for sale.


Jane's story

Jane is 32 years old and lives in the town of Zana in the Kampala west region of Uganda. She is single and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 15 years, Jane has been working hard to manage her produce business, which sells beans and g.nuts (Ugandan peanuts).

To help expand her business, Jane has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand on her produce business and add more sacks of beans and rice for sale. This will help Jane to generate greater profits and improve her standard of living. Jane hopes that in the future she will be able to build rental houses.

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