Andrew's story

Andrew is 42 years old and lives in the town of Gaba in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Andrew has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells items like sugar, rice, posho (or ugali, made from cassava or maize), sodas, salt, mineral water, soap, beer, cooking oil, toilet paper, millet flour, etc.

To help expand his business, Andrew has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy items like sugar, rice, posho, sodas, salt, mineral water, soap, beer, cooking oil, toilet paper, millet flour, etc. This will help Andrew to generate greater profits and meet his household's demands. He hopes that in the future, he will be able to have two different businesses.

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