Jamali is 38 years old and lives in the town of Ibanda in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. He has three children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past five years, Jamali has been working hard to manage his small business, where he sells drinks and food in a hotel (a small restaurant).

To help expand his business, Jamali has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to add more food to his restaurant, and will help Jamali to generate greater profits and increase his daily income. Jamali hopes that, in the future, he will be able to grow his business and also open up another restaurant in town.

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