Patrick is 27 years old and lives in the town of Hoima in the Hoima region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past 2 years, Patrick has been working hard to manage his bar, which sells drinks such as beer, water, spirits and soda.

The loan will be used to purchase more crates of beer, soda and spirits to sell, and will help Patrick to generate greater profits and improve the family standards of living.

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