A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase more rice, millet and sugar to resell.

Elifaazi's story

Elifaazi is 33 years old and lives in the Luwero region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children, 3 of whom are currently in school. For the past 3 years, he has been working hard to manage his small shop, which sells products such as rice, sugar and millet.

To help expand his business, Elifaazi has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more rice, millet and sugar to resell, and will help him to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. He hopes that in the future he will be able to create another business in town.

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