A loan of $1,550 helped to buy sugar, salt, beans, posho, soap, bread, groundnuts, and soya flour to sell.

Amos's story

Amos is 34 years old and lives in the town of Kasese in the Fortportal region of Uganda. He is married and has two children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Amos has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, salt, beans, posho, soap, etc.

To help expand his business, Amos has requested a loan of 4,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sugar, salt, beans, posho, soap, bread, groundnuts, and soya flour, and will help Amos to generate greater profits and provide for the family. Amos hopes that in the future he will be able to increase stock.

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