Andrew
Andrew is 37 years old and lives in the town of Mubende in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Andrew has been working hard to manage his bar, where he sells drinks such as soda and beer.

To help expand his business, Andrew has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more beer, spirits and wine to sell. This will help Andrew to generate greater profits and pay the school fees for his children. Andrew hopes that in the future he will be able to start supplying groceries in the neighboring towns.

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