Caroline's story

Caroline is 21 years old and lives in the town of Isingiro in the Mbarara region of Uganda. For the past 4 years, Caroline has been working hard to manage her clothing sales business.

To help expand her business, Caroline has requested a loan of 1,250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy clothes to sell and will help Caroline to generate greater profits. With these profits from her expanded business, Caroline will be in a position to improve her standard of living by meeting basic home needs. Caroline hopes that in the future she will be able to expand into a boutique.

Caroline is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides both a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities and a forum for life-skills training.
