Mubaraka is 37 years old and lives in the town of Ibanda in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. For the past six years, he has been working hard to manage his business where he sells posho, coffee, and beans.
Mubaraka is requesting a 2,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to stock more produce such as dry beans and maize flour to sell. His loan will help him generate greater profits and target additional customers. Mubaraka hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business.
Mubaraka is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Mubaraka who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
