Hamson's story

Hamson is 26 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara in Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past 3 years, Hamson has been working hard to manage his grocery, which sells pasho, rice, sugar, eggs and soda.

To help expand his business, Hamson has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a fridge, rice, sugar and Pampers, and will help Hamson generate greater profits and increase his family's standard of living. Hamson hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his grocery and have a wholesale business.

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