A loan of $825 helped to buy more essential commodities for resale in his general store.

Saliva's story

Saliva is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo, in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, three of whom are currently in school. For the past seven years, Saliva has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, Saliva has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale. This will help Saliva to generate greater profits and pay his children's school fees. Saliva hopes that in the future he will be able to buy a plot of land.

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