A loan of $1,175 helped to stock more drinks like beer, soda, wine and spirits to sell in this festive season.


Margret's story

Margret is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kachwamba in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has six children with three of them currently in school.

For the past 11 years, Margret has been working hard to manage her small bar, which sells drinks such as beer, spirits and wine.

To help expand her business, Margret has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more drinks like beer, soda, wine and spirits to sell in this festive season. It will help Margret to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Margret hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a pool table and set up another bar room.

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