Stellah's story

Stellah is 22 years old and lives in the town of Lukaya in the Masaka region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, Stellah has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells all kinds of clothes for sale.

To help expand her business, Stellah has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy new ladies' and kids' clothes to attract her customers.

This will help Stellah generate greater profits and pay back the loan on time and save some money for future use. Stellah hopes that, in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a family house.

Stellah 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.
