Cissy's story

Cissy is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kitintale in Uganda. She is married and has four children. Three of her children are currently in school.

For the past three years, Cissy has been working hard to manage her poultry farm. From her farm, she sells chickens and eggs.

To help expand her business, Cissy has requested a loan in the amount of 2,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds would be used to buy more chickens, which Cissy feels would help her generate more profits. In the future, Cissy hopes to able to build a better poultry house.

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