Milly's story

Milly is 38 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is single and has 4 children who are currently in school. For the past 8 years, Milly has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, soap and salt. To help expand her business, Milly has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items for the shop, such as sugar and salt, to sell. The loan will help Milly generate greater profits, improve her family's standards of living, and pay for her children's school fees. Milly hopes that in the future, she will be able to be a productive woman. Milly is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Milly who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro-loans.
