Edward is 39 years old and lives in the town of Luwero in the Luwero region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children, 2 of them currently in school.

For the past 6 years, Edward has been working hard to manage his spare parts store, which sells car wheels and other spare parts. To help expand his business, Edward has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to add more stock of car wheels and other spare parts to his business, and will help Edward to generate greater profits and afford to send his children to school. Edward hopes that in the future he will be able to buy big machines which will help him to run his business.

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