A loan of $875 helped buy more drinks for resale.


Ruth's story

Ruth is 29 years old and lives in the town of Wobulezi in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has 2 children who are both currently in school. For the past 6 years, Ruth has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks like soda and beer.

To help expand her business, Ruth has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks for resale, and will help Ruth to generate greater profits and pay half of her children's school fees. Ruth hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a motorcycle.

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