A loan of $800 helped to buy more essential commodities like milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale.


Bayan's story

Bayan is 45 years old and lives in the town of Mubende in the Mubende region of Uganda. She is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Bayan has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells dry beans, sugar, maize, flour and salt. To help expand her business, Bayan has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale, and will help Bayan to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Bayan hopes that, in the future, she will be able to build a commercial house. Bayan is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Bayan who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
