Alex is 38 years old and lives in the town of Paidha in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has four children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past six years, Alex has been working hard to manage his small business, which sells clothes.

To help expand his business, Alex has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for resale, and will help Alex to generate greater profits and pay school fees, food and medical bills for his family. Alex hopes that in the future he will be able to get another loan from BRAC.

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