Rogers's story

Rogers is 38 years old and lives in the town of Fortportal in the Fortportal region of Uganda. He is married and has 2 children who are both currently in school.

For the past 5 years, Rogers has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar, salt, beans, posho (a maize dish similar to grits), soap, salt, bread, groundnuts, and soya flour. To help expand his business, Rogers has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy items to restock his store and will help Rogers to generate greater profits and improve his standard of living.

Roger hopes that in the future he will be able to expand business.

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