A loan of $775 helped to expand his business operations by purchasing additional inventory (second-hand clothing and household items).


Robert's story

Robert is 45 years old and lives in the town of Pakwach in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has five children, four of whom are currently in school.



For the past 17 years, Robert has been working hard to manage his small business, where he sells clothes and household items. To help expand his business, Robert has requested a loan in the amount of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan proceeds would be used to buy more second-hand clothes and household items like plates for his business expansion. By increasing his inventory, Robert expects that the loan proceeds will enable him to generate greater profits. In the future, if needed, Robert hopes to be able to secure another loan.



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