Emmanuel
Emmanuel is 29 years old and lives in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past three years, Emmanuel has been working hard to manage his grocery store, which sells food and home supplies to local customers.

To help expand his business, Emmanuel has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar and cooking oil for resale, and will help Emmanuel to generate greater profits and improve his family's welfare. Emmanuel hopes that in the future he will be able to continue growing his business.

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