A loan of $800 helped to buy more essential commodities to sell.


Wilson's story

Wilson is 46 years old and lives in the town of Kijura in the Hoima region of Uganda. He is married and with three children. For the past six years, Wilson has been working hard to manage his retail shop, where he sells sugar, soap and salt.

To help expand his business, Wilson has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities to sell, and will help Wilson generate greater profits and take care of his health. Wilson hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business into a wholesale shop.

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