Yawasi's story

Yawasi is 50 years-old and lives in the town of Ntungamo in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is married and has seven children with three of them currently in school. For the past 15 years, Yawasi has been working hard to manage his mixed farming, which sells milk, raw bananas and coffee.

To help expand his business, Yawasi has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from Kiva partner BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more seeds such as beans and maize for planting and cattle feed which will help the cattle produce enough milk. This will help Yawasi generate greater profits and pay school fees and medical bills for his children. Yawasi hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business on a large scale.

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