Joseph's story

Joseph is 53 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. He is married and has 6 children with 4 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Joseph has been working hard to manage his produce store.

To help expand his business, Joseph has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cassava flour and maize flour to sell, which will help Joseph to generate greater profits, pay school fees for his children and also improve his family’s standard of living. Joseph hopes that in the future he will be able to build more rental houses.

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