Brian's story

Brian is 28 years old and lives in the town of Nebbi in the Nebbi region of Uganda. He has 2 children, one of whom is currently in school.

For the past 3 years, Brian has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells essential items like sugar, salt, cooking oil, and where customers can also do mobile money transactions.

To help expand his business, Brian has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase for more sacks of sugar, salt, maize flour and will also be invested in mobile money for the mobile money transaction business.

This will help Brian to generate greater profits. He plans to manage to save some money for his children's school fees and other things.

Brian hopes that in the future he will be able to own a plot of land from his savings.

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