A loan of $1,125 helped to buy the best quality second-hand shoes, in order to attract more customers and increase profits.

Ahmedi's story

Ahmedi is 30 years old and lives in the town of Mityana, in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has three children, two of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Ahmedi has been working hard to manage his small business, where he sells second-hand shoes.

To help expand his business, Ahmedi has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. He will use the loan funds to buy the best quality second-hand shoes, which will attract more customers. This use of the loan will help him to generate greater profits, to pay school fees for his children, and to have a better life. He hopes that, in the future, he will be able to open up a big wholesale shop.

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