A loan of $800 helped to buy more items like molasses that will help in making the local drink he sells.


Alfred's story

Alfred is 49 years old and lives in the town of Bungokho in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has five children with three of them currently in school. For the past five years, Alfred has been working hard to manage his small business, which sells a local drink called waragi.

To help expand his business, Alfred has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items like molasses that will help in making the local drink to sell, and will help Alfred to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Alfred hopes that in the future he will be able to expand into a bigger business.

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