Jalia's story

Jalia is 32 years old and has three children, two of whom are currently in school. She lives in the town of Iganga in Uganda. For the past six years, Jalia has been working hard to manage her boutique where she sells clothes. Jalia is requesting a 2,500,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to increase her stock of new clothing to sell. Her loan will help to expand her business and generate greater profit which she will use to pay school fees for her children. In the future, Jalia hopes to expand her business. Jalia is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Jalia who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
