Sulaima is 40 years old, married, and has four children, two of whom attend school. He lives in the town of Bugiri in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past seven years, Sulaima has been working hard to manage his small shop, which sells spare parts.

To help expand his business, Sulaima is requesting a loan from BRAC Uganda for 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings, which he will use to buy more spare parts to sell. The loan will help Sulaima generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. In the future, he hopes that he will be able to open another outlet for motorcycles.

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