Rogers
Rogers is 30 years old and lives in the town of Ibanda in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past 3 years, Rogers has been working hard to manage his drug shop, which sells medicine.

To help expand his business, Rogers has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more drugs to be sold, and will help Rogers to generate greater profits and pay the family medical expenses and food. Rogers hopes that in the future he will be able to open up more businesses in town.

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