A loan of $825 helped to buy more essential commodities like milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale.


Jackson's story

Jackson is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fort portal region of Uganda. He is single and has five children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Jackson has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which does carpentry and also sells sugar and soap.

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

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