Benon's story

Benon is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala South region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, 3 of whom are currently in school. For the past two years Benon has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells drinks like beer.

To help expand his business, Benon has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more beers and soda for resale, and will help Benon to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Benon hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business more.

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