A loan of $800 helped buy more hair foods, braids and weaves.

Betty's story

Betty is 43 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has three children with none of them currently in school. For the past 7 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her saloon, which sells hair foods, braids and weaves.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more hair foods, braids and weaves, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and boost the business. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her saloon to a modern level.

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