Sadat is 27 years old and lives in the town of Mpigi in the Kampala North region of Uganda. He is married and has 2 children who are both currently in school. For the past 2 years, Sadat has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells sugar and soap.

To help expand his business, Sadat has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like soap and salt for resale, and will help Sadat to generate greater profits and expand his business. Sadat hopes that in the future he will be able to increase more stock and profits.

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