Sauba's story

Sauba is 21 years old and lives in the town of Iganga in the Iganga region of Uganda. She is Married and has one child. For the past 2 years, Sauba has been working hard to manage her clothing sales, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Sauba has requested a loan of 1,300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell and will help Sauba to generate greater profits.

When business and profits expand, this will enable Sauba to cater to her child's needs at large, thereby improving their standards of living.

Sauba hopes that in the future she will be able to start up a boutique.

Sauba 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.
