A loan of $1,000 helped buy more piglets and expand their pens.

Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is 32 years old and lives in the town of Abaita Ababiri in the region of Kampala, in western Uganda. He is married and has two children. For the past three years, Emmanuel has been working hard to manage his piggery, which deals in rearing and selling pigs.

To help expand his business, Emmanuel has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more piglets and expand their pens, and will help Emmanuel to generate greater profits and increase his daily income. Emmanuel hopes that in the near future he will be able to to have a bigger farm.

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