Agnes's story

Agnes is 35 years old, married, and has three children who attend school. She lives in Kasese in the Fortportal region of Uganda. Agnes operates a retail shop, selling household items such as detergent, toilet paper, and vaseline.

To help expand her business, Agnes requested a loan from BRAC Uganda for 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings, which she will use to add stock of detergent, toilet paper, vaseline, and other items. The loan will help Agnes to generate greater profits and increase capital. She hopes that in the future she will be able to fill up her shop.

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