Jonathan
Jonathan is 29 years old and lives in the town of Kamuli, in the Jinja region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past two years, Jonathan has been working hard to manage his hotel and bar, which provides accomodation and drinks for local travellers.

To help expand his business, Jonathan has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more crates of beer, and will help Jonathan to generate greater profits and improve the quality of life for his family. Jonathan hopes that in the future he will be able to build commercial housing.

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