A loan of $775 helped to pay rent for his retail store.

Hassan's story

Hassan is 40 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past five years, Hassan has been working hard to manage his retail store, where he sells sugar, flour, rice, and other items.

To help expand his business, Hassan has requested a loan of UGX 2,000,000 (Ugandan shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to pay rent for his shop and will help Hassan to generate greater profits and increase the family's income. Hassan hopes that, in the future, he will be able to buy land.

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