Christopher's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more cassava flour, sodas and other items.
Christopher is 28 years old and lives in the town of Tororo in the region of Mbale in Uganda. He is married and has six children, with four of them currently in school. For the past two years, Christopher has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells soda and cassava flour. To help expand his business, Christopher has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more cassava flour, sodas and other items, and will help Christopher to generate greater profits and educate his children. Christopher hopes that in the future, he will be able to expand his business. Christopher is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Christopher who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
