Lillian's story

Lilian is 20 years old and lives in the town of Zirobwe in the Kasangati region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Lilian has been working hard to manage her Crafts shop & Cash crops, which sells African craft shoes and cash crops.

To help expand her business, Lilian has requested a loan of 900000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more craft shoes, fabric clothes and more seedlings, and will help Lilian to generate greater profits and Lilian will realize more profits from the expanded business. She will be in position to improve on her standard of living and also cater for her siblings and contribute to the respective school fees. Lilian hopes that in the future she will be able to to venture into the poultry business and generate more profits.
