Patrick's story

Patrick is 25 years old and lives in the town of Kasubi in the Kampala East region of Uganda. For the past three years, Patrick has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells essential goods like sugar, salt, and soap.

To help expand his business, Patrick has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more goods like bottled water and soap, and will help Patrick to generate greater profits and allow him to finish his house. Patrick hopes that in the future he will be able to open a wholesale shop.

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