Amos's story

Amos is 32 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is single and has one child. For the past 6 years, Amos has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells rice, maize flour and dry beans. To help expand his business, Amos has requested a loan of 2,500,000 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 Amos to generate greater profits and improve his family standards of living. Amos hopes that in the future he will be able to have the best stocked shop in the center and own a mini supermarket. Amos is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Amos who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
