A loan of $575 helped to buy more crates of beer.

James's story

James is 35 years old and lives in the town of Pakwach in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has five children with three of them currently in school. For the past 12 years, James has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells local liquor and beer.

To help expand his business, James has requested a loan of 1,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more crates of beer, and will help James to generate greater profits and purchase ad space to attract more customers. James hopes that in the future he will be able to continue growing his business.

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