A loan of $1,000 helped build a new class room block.

Betty's story

Betty is 40-years-old and lives in the town of Tororo in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has five children who are all currently in school. For the past 13 years, Betty has been working hard to manage her school, which provides education services.

To help expand her business, Betty has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to build a new classroom block, and will help Betty to generate greater profits and improve the school. Betty hopes that in the future she will be able to educate her children.

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.
