Enock is 48 years old and lives in the town of Mbarara in the Mbarara region of Uganda. He is married and has 4 children who are all currently in school. For the past 6 years, Enock has been working hard to manage his grocery store, which trades in groceries.
To help expand his business, Enock has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to procure more items for the store such us sugar, salt and bread to be sold and will help Enock to generate greater profits and increase on business sales. Enock hopes that in the future he will be able to become self-reliant.
Enock is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Enock who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
