A loan of $975 helped to expand his business into a wholesale shop.

Mathias's story

Mathias is 38 years old and lives in the town of Kajjansi in the Kampala west region of Uganda. He is married and has 6 children with 3 of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, Mathias has been working hard to manage his beverages business, which sells sodas and beers.

To help expand his business, Mathias has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used for business expansion into a wholesale shop and will help Mathias to generate greater profits and to bridge the financial gaps in his business. Mathias hopes that in the future he will be able to provide quality products.

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