A loan of $825 helped to buy more beers and soda for resale.


Agnes's story

Agnes is 32 years old and lives in the town of Fort Portal, in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has four children, with three of them currently in school. For the past five years, Agnes has been working hard to manage her bar, which sells drinks, like soda and beer. To help expand her business, Agnes has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more beers and soda for resale. It will help Agnes to generate greater profits and pay her children's school fees. Agnes hopes that in the future she will be able to rent a big room that will be used only to sell drinks, like beers and soda. Agnes is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Agnes who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
