A loan of $1,150 helped to buy more beers, sodas, whiskey and to improve the accommodation at her lodge.


Marion's story

Marion is 50 years old and lives in the town of Mityana in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with none of them currently in school. For the past 9 years Marion has been working hard to manage her bar and lodge business, which sells beers, sodas, whiskeys, and wines.

To help expand her business, Marion has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more beers, sodas and whiskey, and to improve accommodation. This will help Marion to generate greater profits and increase stock. Marion hopes that in the future she will be able to construct more shops.

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