A loan of $1,225 helped to buy more drinks like beer and soda for resale.

Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is 38 years old and lives in the town of Tororo in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has three children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past two years, Emmanuel has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells drinks like soda and beer.

To help expand his business, Emmanuel has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drinks like beer and soda for resale, and will help Emmanuel to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Emmanuel hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business more.

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