The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like cooking oil, rice and salt for resale, and will help Charlse to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Charlse hopes that in the future he will be able to expand business into whole sale.

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