Jackson is 35 years old and lives in the town of Mubende, Uganda. He is married and has four children, two of whom are currently in school. For the past two years, Jackson has been working hard to manage his grocery store, where he sells beans, maize and g-nuts.

To help expand his business, Jackson has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more produce like rice and posho, and will help Jackson to generate greater profits and help pay school fees. Jackson hopes that in the future he will be able to open up another store.

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