Moses's story

Moses is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kumi in the Soroti region of Uganda.He is married and has six children with five of them currently in school. For the past six years, Moses has been working hard to manage his produce store, which sells produce.

To help expand her business, Moses has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more maize flour, rice and beans for resale, and will help Moses to generate greater profits and manage to pay school fees for his children. Moses hopes that in the future she will be able to become the biggest supplier of produce in town.

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