To help expand his business, Bukeru is requesting a loan in the amount of 1,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more food items like passion fruit, Irish potatoes, etc., and will help Bukeru to generate greater profits and to thereby improve his family's standard of living. Bukeru hopes that in the future he will be able to open grocery stores in more locations.
Bukeru is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Bukeru who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
