Martin
Martin is 32 years old and lives in the town of Tororo in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has two children; one of them is currently in school. For the past five years, Martin has been working hard to manage his small business, which sells firewood.

To help expand his business, Martin has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more firewood for resale, and will help Martin to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his child. Martin hopes that in the future, he will be able to educate his children.

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