Mutwawbi's story

Mutwawbi is 40 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Mutwawbi has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells basins, slippers, baking flour, sweets and soap.

To help expand his business, Mutwawbi has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more basins, slippers, baking flour, sweets, and soap, and will help Mutwawbi to generate greater profits and expand his business. Mutwawbi hopes that in the future, he will be able to construct a rental house.

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