David is 42 years old and he lives in the town of Bungokho, in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past six years, David has been working hard to manage his retail shop, in which he sells sugar, soap, cooking oil, and rice.
To help expand his business, David has requested a loan of UGX 2,500,000 (Ugandan shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sugar, soap, cooking oil, and rice and it will help David to generate greater profits and boost the business.
David hopes that, in the future, he will be able to have a second shop.
