A loan of $825 helped to buy more materials to make wooden beds.


Luke's story

Luke, a 30-year-old married father of three children, two of whom are currently in school, lives in the town of Arua Hill in the Arua region of Uganda. For the past 15 years, Luke has been working hard to manage his small workshop business which makes beds, chairs and tables.



To help expand his business, Luke has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to buy more materials to make wooden beds. This will help him to generate greater profits and pay his children's school fees. He hopes to become a big and well-known local businessman in town in the future.



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