Difasi is 32 years old and lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. He is married and has four children who are all currently in school. For the past three years, Difasi has been working hard to manage his retail shop that sells sugar and soap.

The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities, like sugar, for resale, and will help Difasi to generate greater profits and expand his business. Difasi hopes that in the future he will be able to be the richest man in town.

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