Sarah's story

Sarah is 40 years old and lives in the town of Pallisa in the Mbale region of Uganda. She is married and has five children, who are all currently in school. For the past six years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her clothing shop, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy shirts, trousers and skirts, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and increase stock. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to have a wholesale shop.

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