Margret's story

Margret is 40 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, 2 attend school.

For the past 3 years, Margret has worked hard to manage her retail shop which sells soda, bread, juice, sugar, soap, detergent, cooking oil, eggs and other items.

To help expand her business, Margret requests a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy soda, bread, juice, sugar, soap, detergent, cooking oil, eggs, and other item. It will help Margret to generate greater profits and increase her standard of living.

Margret hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand the business into a super market.

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