Ahamedi is 38 years old and lives in the town of Mityano in the Mubende region of Uganda. He is married and has two children--one of them currently in school. For the past seven years, Ahamedi has been working hard to manage his small shop, which sells second-hand shoes.

To help expand his business, Ahamedi has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more women's and children's shoes, and will help Ahamedi to generate greater profits and buy a larger variety of shoes. Ahamedi hopes that in the future he will be able to open up other outlets for shoe sales.

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