Brian's story

Brian is 24 years old and lives in the town of Paidha in the Nebbi region of Uganda. He is married and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 5 years, Brian has been working hard to manage his retail store, which sells sugar, salt, soap, rice, and maize flour.

To help expand his business, Brian has requested a loan of 3,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sacks of sugar, salt, and rice, and will help Brian to generate greater profits and, therefore, be able to also cater for his family's needs, hence improving their standard of living. Brian hopes that in the future he will be able to expand to a wholesale shop.

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.
