Makeera's story

Makeera is 48 years old and lives in the town of Nyendo in the Masaka region of Uganda. He is married and has 9 children with 8 of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, Makeera has been working hard to manage his poultry feed business.

To help expand his business, Makeera has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to add stock to the business and buy more maize flour to sell, and will help Makeera to generate greater profits and increase the income level of the family. He hopes that in the future he will be able to educate his children.

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