Eriot's story

Eriot is 44 years old and lives in the town of Kireka, in the Kampala south region of Uganda. He is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past 15 years, Eriot has been working hard to manage his market business where he sells fresh food such as maize and sweet potatoes. To help expand his business, Eriot is requesting a 2,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to buy more fresh food like maize to sell. His loan will help Eriot generate greater profits and increase his income. In the future, he hopes that he will be able to open up a wholesale shop. Eriot is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Eriot who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro loans.
