A loan of $800 helped to buy more general items to sell.


John's story

John lives in the town of Ibanda in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. He is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past five years, John has been working hard to manage his retail shop where he sells posho, soda, sugar, soap and other household goods.

To help expand his business, John has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more general items like beans, cooking oil and soap to keep his store fully stocked. The loan will help John to generate greater profits, increase daily income and improve his livelihood. John hopes that in the future, he will be able to have a larger store.

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