Manasi is 48 years old and lives in the town of Packwach in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has six children, four of whom are currently in school. For the past four years, Manasi has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, Manasi has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities for resale and will help Manasi to generate greater profits, which he plans to use for the family's medical expenses and for school fees for his children. Manasi hopes that in the future he will be able to buy a motorcycle to earn more income.

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