A loan of $800 helped to buy a welding machine.

Grace's story

Grace is 37 years old and lives in the town of Matugga in the Luwero region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 8 years, Grace has been working hard to manage her welding business, which sells metallic suitcases and saucepans.

To help expand her business, Grace has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a welding machine, and will help Grace to generate greater profits and increased income. Grace hopes that in the future she will be able to expand into a big welding shop.

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