Juma's story

Juma is 38 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has three children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past two years, Juma has been working hard to manage his bar, where he sells sodas, beers, spirits, and water.

To help expand his business, Juma has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy beverages and at the same time help Juma generate greater profits and expand his business. In the future, Juma hopes to start another business.

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