Joseph
Joseph is 50 years old and lives in the town of Arua in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has six children who are all currently in school. For the past 10 years, Joseph has been working hard to manage his small business, which sells meat.

To help expand his business, Joseph has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more meat for resale, and will help Joseph to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Joseph hopes that, in the future, he will be able to build a small shop for selling meat.

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.
