Robert's story

Robert is 35 years old and lives in the town of Nasana in the Kampala west region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Robert has been working hard to manage his hair-dressing salon.

To help expand his business, Robert has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more hair weaves and other hair styles for the salon to attract more clients, and will help Robert to generate greater profits and provide medicale care for his chidren. Robert hopes that in the future he will be able to own a bigger salon.

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