Godfrey's story

Godfrey is 38 years old and lives in the town of Kacwamba in the Fortportal region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Godfrey has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, salt, beans, posho, soap, bread, groundnuts, and soya flour.

To help expand his business, Godfrey 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 Godfrey to generate greater profits and increase capital. Godfrey hopes that in the future, he will be able to have growth in the business.

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