Simon's story

Simon is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the Kampala South region of Uganda. He is married and has three children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past 10 years, Simon has been working hard to sell livestock including cattle, sheep and goats.

To help expand his business, Simon has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to to buy more livestock, and will help Simon to generate greater profits and to increase his daily stock. Simon hopes that in the future he will be able to to set up a dairy farm.

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