Vincent's story

Vincent is 41 years old and lives in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. He is married and has six children; four of them are currently in school. For the past 13 years, Vincent has been working hard to manage his welding shop, which does metal work and repairs.

To help expand his business, Vincent has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more bars for making windows, doors and gates, and will help Vincent to generate greater profits and improve his family's well-being. Vincent hopes that in the future he will be able to have many customers and contracts.

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