A loan of $975 helped to buy phones and phone covers.


Waiswa's story

Waiswa is 32 years old and lives in the town of Mayuge in the Jinja region of Uganda. He is married and has three children with two of them currently in school. For the past eight years, Waiswa has been working hard to manage his phone accessories business, which sells phones.

To help expand his business, Waiswa has requested a loan of 2,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy phones and phone covers, and will help Waiswa to generate greater profits and increase stock. Waiswa hopes that in the future he will be able to expand the business.

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