A loan of $800 helped to purchase more items for his shop to sell.

James's story

James is 30 years old and lives in the town of Nakaloke in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has two children, who are currently in school.

For the past 10 years, James has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, soap, and salt.

To help expand his business, James has requested a loan of UGX 2,000,000 from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more items for the shop to sell. It will help James to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children.

James hopes that in the future he will be able to increase his stock and will also be able to borrow more money from Brac.

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