The loan will be used to buy animal feed, and that will help Swali to generate greater profits and improve his family’s standard of living. Swali hopes that in the future he will be able to start a butcher shop.

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