A loan of $800 helped to buy more essential items such as sugar, milk and bread for sale.


Buluhan's story

Buluhan is 33 years old and lives in the town of Nakaloke in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has two children with one of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Buluhan has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells items like sugar, soap and salt.

To help expand his business, Buluhan has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential items such as sugar, milk and bread for sale and will help Buluhan to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Buluhan hopes that in the future he will be able to stock more goods for the shop to sell.

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