A loan of $875 helped to buy more essential commodities such as sugar.

James's story

James is 32 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala north region of Uganda. He is married and has 3 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, James has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, James has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities such as sugar for resale, and will help James to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. James hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business.

James is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP), which 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.
