A loan of $825 helped to buy more food to stock his store.

Rashid's story

Rashid is 37 years old and lives in the town of Abaita Ababiri in the Kampala West region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 7 years, Rashid has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells a variety of different commodities.

To help expand his business, Rashid has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more food like bread and eggs to stock his store, and will help Rashid to generate greater profits and become more business-oriented. Rashid hopes that in the future he will be able to become rich and open up other stores.

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