A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more coffee to sell.

Silver's story

Silver is 34 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in Fort Potal region in Uganda. He is married and has 5 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 15 years, Silver has been working hard to manage his coffee shop, which sells coffee. To help expand his business, Silver has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more coffee to sell, and will help Silver to generate greater profits and pay for school fees and his family's basic needs. Silver hopes that in the future he will be able to add capital to the business.

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