Denis is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kisekende in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past six years, Denis has been working hard to manage his small produce business, which sells produce like dry maize cassava flour.
To help expand his business, Denis has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more produce like maize and cassava flour for resale, and will help Denis to generate greater profits and improve his family’s standard of living. Denis hopes that in the future, he will be able to own another milling machine business.
Denis is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Denis who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
