David is 41 years old and lives in the town of Kireka, in the Kampala east region of Uganda. He is married and has five children, four of them currently in school. For the past four years, David has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells household commodities.
To help expand his business, David has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. He will use the loan to buy more household commodities to sell, including sugar, rice, posho, flour, eggs and bread. This will help David to generate greater profits and expand his business. David hopes that in the future, he will be able to educate his children.
