Joseph
Joseph is 31 years old and lives in the town of Kyenjojo in the Mubende region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Joseph has been working hard to manage his construction business, which sells timber.

To help expand his business, Joseph has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more timber for resale, and will help Joseph to generate greater profits. Joseph hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business.

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