John
John is 30 years old and lives in the town of Ntungamo in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past four years, John has been working hard to manage his mini supermarket, which sells food and domestic-use goods.

To help expand his business, John has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more goods like sugar, bread, salt and cooking oils to sell, and will help John to generate greater profits and expand his business, which will then increase his income. John hopes that in the future he will be able to expand the size of his supermarket.

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