Moses is 28 years old and lives in the town of Kijura in the Hoima region of Uganda. He is married and has one child. For the past three years, Moses has been working hard to manage his produce business selling beans and maize flour .
To help expand his business, Moses has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to expand the business and buy more beans and maize to sell. It will help Moses to generate greater profits and increase the family's income. Moses hopes that in the future, he will be able to develop the business .
Moses is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Moses who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
