Rosemary is 29 years old and lives in the town of Zana in the Kampala region of Uganda. She has 3 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, Rosemary has been working hard to manage her jewelry business, where she sells necklaces, bangles and watches. To help expand her business, Rosemary has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. This loan will be used to buy materials to make bangles, which will help Rosemary to generate greater profits and earn income as well as to cater for her basic needs. Rosemary hopes that in the future, she will be able to construct rental houses.
