Jesca's story

Jesca is 38 years old and lives in the town of Soroti in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has six children, who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Jesca has been working hard to manage her wholesale and retail shop, which sells sugar, soap and salt.

To help expand her business, Jesca has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more essential items for the shop to sell, and will help Jesca to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. She hopes that in the future she will be able to increase the business.

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