A loan of $1,025 helped to buy more chicken feed.

Ivan's story

Ivan is fifty-four years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala south region of Uganda. He is married and has seven children, five of whom are currently in school. For the past seven years, Ivan has been working hard to manage his poultry farm, which sells chickens.

To help expand his business, Ivan has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicken feed, and will help Ivan to generate greater profits and cater for all his family's basic needs such as paying school fees for his children. Ivan hopes that in the future he will be able to to build a residential house.

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