Moses is 38 years old and is married with four children, two of whom are currently in school. He lives in the town of Paidah in the Arua region of Uganda. For the past nine years, Moses has been working hard to manage his small business where he sells clothes.
Moses is requesting a 3,000,000 UGX loan from BRAC Uganda to buy more clothes to sell. His loan will help Moses generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Moses hopes that in the future he will be able to start another side business.
Moses is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Moses who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
