David's story

David, age 31, operates a barber shop to earn a living. He lives with his wife and their four children in the town of Kijura in the Hoima region of Uganda. Three of their children are currently enrolled in school. David has been working hard for the past nine years to manage his salon, where he offers phone-charging services in addition to cutting hair.

To help expand his business, David has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase inventory and to perform necessary repairs. The profits expected from this loan will help David to generate greater profits and to build a house for his family. David hopes that in the future he will be able to buy a motorcycle.

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