A loan of $950 helped to buy more polythene bags and clothes for resale.

Godfrey's story

Godfrey is 44 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past 11 years, Godfrey has been working hard to manage his small shop in which he sells bags.

To help expand his business, Godfrey has requested a loan of 2500000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more polythene bags and clothes for resale and will help Godfrey to generate greater profits and pay his children's school fees. Godfrey hopes that in the future he will be able to build his own flat houses.

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