Bua is 40 years old and lives in the town of Lira in the Gulu region of Uganda. He is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past five years, Bua has been working hard to manage his clothing business, which deals in tailoring.
To help expand business, Bua has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more materials, and will help Bua to generate greater profits. Bua hopes that in the future he will be able to provide clients with what they want.
