Alex's story

Alex is 40 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala south region of Uganda. He is married and has 8 children, with 6 of them currently in school. For the past 12 years, Alex has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, soap and salt. To help expand his business, Alex has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more items for the shop, such as milk and bread to sell, and will help Alex to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Alex hopes that in the future he will be able to enlarge the business more. Alex is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Alex who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for micro-loans.
