Musa's story

Musa is 40 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has two children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past eight years, Musa has been working hard to manage his produce business, which sells posho (or ugali, made from cassava or maize), rice and cassava flour.

To help expand his business, Musa has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase posho, rice and cassava flour, and will help Musa to generate greater profits and expand the business. He hopes that in the future, he will be able to earn more income.

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