Paul Jumah, a 30-year-old married father of six, five of whom are currently in school, lives in the town of Busia in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past three years, he has been working hard to manage his hardware store, which deals in water pipes, taps and other items.

To help expand his business, Paul Jumah has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to stock more hardware items to sell. This will help him to generate greater profits and increase his family's income level. He hopes that in the future he will be able to expand the business.

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