A loan of $800 helped to buy more goods like jelly, biscuits, and soap to sell in his retail shop.

Swairu's story

Swairu is 52 years old and lives in the town of Ibanda in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. He has one child. For the past six years, Swairu has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells candies, Pampers, bread, and other household goods.

To help expand his business, Swairu has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more goods like jelly, biscuits, and soap, and will help Swairu to generate greater profits and increase his daily income. Swairu hopes that in the future he will be able to grow his business and also set up a wholesale shop.

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