A loan of $950 helped to buy more flour and cooking oil for making bread.

Ali's story

"Ali is 35 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past five years, Ali has been working hard to manage his small bakery where he makes bread, cookies, and doughnuts for resale.

To help expand his business, Ali has requested a loan of 2500000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more flour and cooking oil for making bread and will help Ali to generate greater profits and pay his children's school fees. Ali hopes that in the future he will be able to own another bakery in town.

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