Kesa's story

Kesa is 37 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga, in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has five children, who are all currently in school. For the past 15 years, Kesa has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells items like soap, sugar, milk and bread.

To help expand his business, Kesa has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. He will use the loan to purchase more items to resell at his store, such as rice, maize flour and soda. This will help Kesa to generate greater profits and to pay school fees for his children. He hopes that, in the future, he will be able to produce quality products for the shop.

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