Semu's story

Semu is 30 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past three years, Semu has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells flour, sugar, rice, etc. To help expand his business, Semu has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more products such as flour, sugar and rice for resale and will help Semu to generate greater profits and buy more goods. Semu hopes that in the future he will be able to produce more quality products. Semu is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Semu who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
