Siliman's story

Siliman is 28 years old and lives in the town of Luwero, in the Luwero region of Uganda. He is married and has three children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past three years, Siliman has been working hard to manage his welding shop, which does welding to make doors, gates, and windows.

To help expand his business, Siliman has requested a loan of UGX 2,500,000 (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more material that will be used to make metal doors and windows and will help Siliman to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his child. Siliman hopes that, in the future, he will be able to start up another welding workshop.

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