Issa hopes that in the future he will be able to own a very big business.

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