A loan of $800 helped to buy more food items to sell.

Sam's story

Sam is 48 years old and lives in the town of Busia in Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past seven years, Sam has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar salt and other foodstuffs.

To help expand his business, Sam has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more food items to sell, and will help Sam to generate greater profits and enable him to pay medical bills. Sam hopes that in the future he will be able to become a wholesaler.

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