Lavina's story

Lavina is 37 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past two years, Lavina has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, snacks, posho, eggs, bread, soda, curry powder, and juice.

To help expand her business, Lavina has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sugar, snacks, posho, eggs, bread, soda, curry powder, and juice, and will help her to generate greater profits and improve business. Lavina hopes that in the future she will be able to stock the shop.

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