Muhamudu's story

Muhamudu is 40 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara, Uganda. He has three children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past eight years, Muhamudu has been working hard to manage his grocery store where he sells sugar, rice, soda and posho.

To help expand his business, Muhamudu has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more commodities like salt, bread, water and sugar and will help Muhamudu to generate greater profits and expand the business with the additional stock. Muhamudu hopes that in the future, he will be able to set up another business on a large scale.

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