A loan of $1,000 helped buy video and music DVDs.


Ben's story

Ben is 29 years old and lives in the town of Lyantonde in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is single and has 2 children. For the past 3 years, Ben has been working hard to manage his small business, which is a video and music library.

To help expand his business, Ben has requested a loan of 2500000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more video and music DVDs, and will help Ben to generate greater profits and pay for his medical bills. Ben hopes that in the future he will be able to provide the best services in town.

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