Eryab, a 41-year-old resident of the town of Kinubi, located in the Luweero region of Uganda, has four children, three of whom currently attend school. For the past four years, he has been working hard to manage his small bar, which sells beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks.

To help expand his business, Eryab has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more soda and beers for resale, and will help him to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Eryab hopes that in the future he will be able to further expand his business.

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