Benard's story

Benard is 42 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. He is married and has four children with two of them currently in school. For the past 10 years, Benard has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells beer, water, spirits and soda. To help expand his business, Benard has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock beer, water, spirits, and soda, and will help Benard to generate greater profits and improve his welfare. Benard hopes that in the future he will be able to expand the business. Benard is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Benard who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
