A loan of $750 helped to buy more basic items, like soap, sugar, and cooking oil, to offer for sale.


Abigumira's story

Abigumira is 41 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo, in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, three of them currently in school. For the past six years, Abigumira has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells various items, such as sugar, salt and cooking oil.

To help expand his business, Abigumira has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. He will use the loan to buy more essential commodities, such as milk, cooking oil, sugar, and salt, to resell. This will help Abigumira to generate greater profits and pay his children's school fees. Abigumira hopes that in the future he will be able to own a bigger and well-stocked shop.

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