Rosette's story

Rosette is 38 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has three children, with two of them currently in school. For the past three years, Rosette 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, Rosette 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 Rosette to generate greater profits and have a big business. Rosette hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand the business.

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