Agnes's story

Agnes is 46 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has four children with three of them currently in school. For the past two years, Agnes has been working hard to manage her retail shop, where she sells sugar, rice, posho, soda, salt, mineral water, soap, beer, cooking oil, and toilet paper.

To help expand her business, Agnes has requested a loan of 4,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sugar, rice, posho, soda, salt, mineral water, soap, beer, cooking oil, and toilet paper. It will help Agnes to generate greater profits and construct rentals. Agnes hopes that in the future, she will be able to start a poultry firm.

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.
