A loan of $1,000 helped to stock more videos and CDs to sell.


Henry's story

Henry is 29 years old and lives in the town of Luwero in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past three years, Henry has been working hard to manage his video library, which sells video movies and music.

To help expand his business, Henry has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will allow Henry to stock more video movies and CDs to sell and will help him to generate greater profits, so that he can complete his residential house and send his siblings to better schools. Henry hopes that in the future he will be able to open up a video cinema.

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