Robert's story

Robert is 48 years old and lives in the town of Bugiri in the Iganga region of Uganda. He is widowed and has four children, with three of them currently in school. For the past two years, Robert has been working hard to manage his grocery, which sells sugar, rice, maize flour and soap.

To help expand his business, Robert has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more food goods like beans and rice to refill the shop, and will help Robert to generate greater profits and educate his children well. Robert hopes that, in the future, he will be able to shift from retail to wholesale.

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