Ibrahim
Ibrahim is 47 years old and lives in the town of Arua hill in the Arua region of Uganda. He is married and has 7 children, with 4 of them currently in school. For the past 22 years, Ibrahim has been working hard to manage his small business, which sells products such as rice, sugar and millet.

To help expand his business, Ibrahim has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more products such as maize flour, beans and rice for resale, and will help Ibrahim to generate greater profits and pay school fees for his children. Ibrahim hopes that in the future he will be able to eradicate poverty in his family.

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