but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more drinks such as soda and beer for resale.

Andrew's story

Andrew, a 38-year-old resident of the town of Mubende in the Mubende region of Uganda, is married and has two children, both of whom are currently in school. For the past two years, Andrew has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells drinks such as soda and beer.

To help expand his business, Andrew has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to buy more soda and beer for resale. This will help him to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Andrew hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business into a bar and a restaurant.

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