Moses
Moses is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kumi in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has two children who are both currently in school. For the past two years, Moses has been working hard to manage his stationary store, which offers services like photocopying and printing, and sells traditional stationary like books.

To help expand his business, Moses has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more stationary like reams of paper and will help Moses to generate greater profits and buy a refrigerator. Moses hopes that in the future he will be able to finish building his house.

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