William
William is 29 years old and lives in the town of Gaba in the Kampala South region of Uganda. He is single and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 4 years, William has been working hard to manage his small shop, which sells hardware.

To help expand his business, William has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase supplies and will help William to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his child. William hopes that in the future he will be able to expand his business more.

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