Joseph's story

Joseph is 35 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, two of whom currently attend school.

For the past five years, Joseph has been working hard to manage his small business of selling dried food items like maize and beans. To help expand his business, Joseph has requested a loan in the amount of 2,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds would be used to buy more maize for re-sale purposes, and would help Joseph generate greater profits to pay for his children's school fees. In the future, Joseph hopes to be able to buy a maize miller.

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