A loan of $825 helped to buy more essential commodities for resale.


James's story

James is 35 years old and lives in the town of Paidha in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past eight years, James has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, James has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale. It will help James to generate greater profits and pay for food and medical expenses for his family. James hopes that in the future he will be able to sart a side business with more profits.

James is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program 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.
