Samuel's story

Samuel is 41 years old and lives in the town of Kumi in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past five years, Samuel has been working hard to manage his service shop, in which he does repairs on motorcycles, sells spare parts and charges batteries. To help expand his business, Samuel has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more spare parts and power inverters to help with charging batteries. The loan will help Samuel to generate greater profits and improve his family's welfare. Samuel hopes that in the future he will be able to begin preparing for old age and to finish paying the tuition for his child's school fees. Samuel is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves entrepreneurs like Samuel with small business who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
