Aloysious is 45 years old and lives in the town of Paidha in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has six children, four of whom currently attend school. For the past six years, Aloysious has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap (all types).

To help expand his business, Aloysious has requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more essential commodities like sugar and soap for resale, and will help Aloysious to generate greater profits and increase his inventory. Aloysious hopes that in the future he will be able to use loan profits to pay fees and medical expenses.

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