A loan of $1,025 helped to buy more essential commodities for resale.


Francis's story

Francis is 38 years old and lives in the town of Kasubi in the Kampala east region of Uganda. He is married and has 2 children who are both currently in school. For the past year, Francis has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, Francis has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale, and will help Francis to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Francis hopes that in the future he will be able to expand more in his business.

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