Billy is 40 years old and lives in the town of Makindye in the Kampala North region of Uganda. He is married and has one child.
For the past four years, Billy has been working hard to manage his phone accessories store which sells all types of phones and accessories.
To help expand the business, Billy has requested a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy different types of phones. This will help Billy to generate greater profits and open up another branch of his phone business.
Billy hopes that in the future he will be able to buy another piece of land.
