Buruhan
Buruhan is 30 years old and lives in the town of Kijura, in the Hoima region of Uganda. He is married and has five children, three of whom are currently in school. For the past three years, Buruhan has been working hard to manage his dairy farm, where he sells fresh milk.

To help expand his business, Buruhan has requested a loan of UGX 2,000,000 (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more liters of milk to sell and will help Buruhan to generate greater profits and improve his family standards of living and also pay school fees of his children. Buruhan hopes that, in the future, he will be able to own another dairy farm in town.

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