A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase more metal.


Joseph's story

Joseph is 34 years old and lives in the town of Abala, in the Kampala west region of Uganda. He is single, and has two children who are currently in school. For the past 15 years, Joseph has been working hard to manage his welding shop, which sells metal doors. To help expand his business, Joseph has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more metal, and will help Joseph generate greater profits, to expand, and increase his stock. Joseph hopes that in the future, he will be able to buy more metal. 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.
