Ignatius's story

Ignatius is 34 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fortportal region of Uganda. He is married and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 7 years Ignatius has been working hard to manage his pub, which sells soda, beers, wine and spirits.

To help expand his business, Ignatius has requested a loan of 2.500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to improve the business and buy more soda, beers, wine and spirits to sell. These sales will help Ignatius to generate greater profits and help the family in meeting their needs. Ignatius hopes that in the future he will be able to increase his inventory.

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