A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a mixer to make cakes.

Jonathan's story

Jonathan is 36 years old and lives in the town of Busia in the Iganga region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past 3 years, Jonathan has been working hard to manage his bakery, which sells half cakes and scones.

To help expand his business, Jonathan has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a mixer, and it will help Jonathan to generate greater profits and help pay school fees. He hopes that in the future he will be able to start producing loaves of bread.

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