Esther's story

Esther is 28 years old and lives in the town of Bugembe in the Jinja region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, and one of them is currently in school.

For the past three years, Esther has been working hard to manage her electronics shop, which sells batteries, flat irons, kettles, wires, bulbs and stabilizers.

To help expand her business, Esther has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy batteries, flat irons, kettles, wires, bulbs and stabilizers, and it will help Esther to generate greater profits and improve her standard of living.

Esther hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

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