A loan of $775 helped to buy more sugar, salt, and matchboxes.

Musa's story

Musa is 35 years old and lives in the town of Namutumba in the Iganga region of Uganda. He is married with three children. Two of them are currently in school. For the past five years, Musa has worked hard to manage his retail business, in which he sells sugar, salt, match boxes and other items.

To help expand his business, Musa has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar, salt, match boxes and other items, and will help Musa to generate greater profits to support his family. Musa hopes that in the future he will be able to meet his customers' needs.

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