A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more furniture for making more beds and chairs for sale.


Micheal's story

Micheal is 43 years old and lives in the town of Kajjansi in the region of Kampala west in Uganda. He is married and has six children; four of them are currently in school. For the past 8 years, Micheal has been working hard to manage his carpentry shop, which makes doors, beds, chairs, and tables.

To help expand his business, Micheal has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more furniture for making more beds and chairs for sale, and will help Micheal to generate greater profits and bridge the financial gap in his business and also pay school fees for his children.

Micheal hopes that in the future he will be able to provide better quality in his business.

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