Sukaiman's story

Sukaiman is 30 years old and lives in the town of Nakaloke in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past three years, Sukaiman has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, salt, beans, posho (grits), soap, bread, groundnuts and soya flour.

To help expand his business, Sukaiman has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sugar, salt, beans, posho, soap, bread, groundnuts and soya flour, and will help Sukaiman to generate greater profits. Sukaiman hopes that in the future he will be able to develop.

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