A loan of $800 helped to purchase new clothes to sell.


Susan's story

Susan is 38 years old and lives in the town of Busia in the region of Uganda. She has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Susan has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Susan has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more new clothes to sell. It will help Susan to generate greater profits and be able to pay school fees for her children. Susan hopes that in the future, she will be able to start up a new business and complete her unfinished house.

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