Beatrice's story

Beatrice is 50 years old and lives in the town of Tororo, in the region of mbale in Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, 2 of which currently attend school. For the past 10 years, Beatrice has been working hard to manage her local brew business, which sells local brew in various quantities.

To help expand her business, Beatrice has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase millet and sorghum, and will help Beatrice to generate greater profits which will help her pay for her children's school fees. Beatrice hopes that in the future she will be able to educate her children.

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