A loan of $1,025 helped buy more goats and cows.

Christopher's story

Christopher is 30 years old and lives in the town of Kabwole in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is married and has three children with two of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Christopher has been working hard to manage his farm, from which he sells cattle, goats and "matooke" (green plantains).

To help expand his business, Christopher has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more goats and cows, and will help Christopher to generate greater profits and will help him produce more milk, which is an advantage to his family. Christopher hopes that in the future he will be able to expand to do goat rearing on a larger farm.

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