A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more essential commodities.


Mande's story

Mande is 29 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi, in the Luweero region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past 3 years, Mande has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap. To help expand his business, Mande has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities, and will help Mande to generate greater profits and buy food for his family. Mande hopes that in the future he will be able to buy a motorcycle. Mande is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Mande who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
