A loan of $825 helped to increase his stock of beer and soft drinks.

John's story

John is 44 years old and lives in the town of Kijura in the Hoima region of Uganda. He is married and has eight children, five of whom currently attend school. For the past six years, John has been working hard to manage his bar, where he sells beer and soft drinks.

To help expand his business, John has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to increase stock, and will help John to generate greater profits, boost his income, and buy a motorcycle. John hopes that in the future he will be able to expand and have another bar in town.

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