A loan of $825 helped to purchase commodities such as milk, bread, sugar and soap to sell.


Isaac's story

Isaac is 30 years old, married, and has two children, one of whom attends school. He lives in the town of Arua hill in the Arua region of Uganda. For the past nine years, Isaac has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells all types of flour, sugar, and soap.

To help expand his business, Isaac is requesting a loan from BRAC Uganda for 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings, which he will use to buy more essential commodities such as milk, bread, sugar, and soap. The loan will help Isaac generate greater profits, pay school fees for his child, and buy basic needs such as food. Isaac hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business into a wholesale shop.

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