A loan of $775 helped to buy more food like dry beans and maize flour.


Said's story

Said is 29 years old and lives in the town of Lukaya in the Masaka region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children, with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Said has been working hard to manage his small food stall, which sells produce.

To help expand his business, Said has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more foods like dry beans and maize flour, and will help Said to generate greater profits and improve his family's standard of living. Said hopes that in the future he will be able to own a milling machine that will process the food.

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