Prossy's story

Prossy is 21 years old and lives in the town of Zana in the Abaita Ababiri region of Uganda. For the past 5 years, Prossy has been working hard to manage her food stall, which sells fresh food.

To help expand her business, Prossy has requested a loan of 1,800,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more batches of green bananas and vegetables to increase on her sales. And will help Prossy to generate greater profits and her production will increase and attract more revenue. She will manage to buy food for her family.

Prossy hopes that in the future she will be able to have the biggest food stall business in the entire community.

Prossy 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.
