Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is 35 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Ibrahim has been working hard to manage his retail shop where he sells rice, biscuits, soda and flour.

To help expand his business, Ibrahim has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more oil, rice and other goods for his business and will help Ibrahim to generate greater profits and allow him to buy more goods to sell. Ibrahim hopes that in the future, he will be able to sell more quality products.

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