A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more electrical wire, tape, and other electronic necessities.


James's story

James is 32 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara, Uganda. He has 4 children, with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, James has been working hard to manage his electronics shop, which sells light bulbs, oil, cables, and circuits.

To help expand his business, James has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more electrical wire, tape, and other electronic necessities, and will help James to generate greater profits and grow the business with the expanded sales. James hopes that in the future he will be able to start another wholesale business.

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