Josephine's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to buy another sewing machines and sewing thread.
To help expand her business, Josephine has requested a loan of 800,000 UGX (Ugandan Shillings) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy another sewing machine and sewing thread, and will help Josephine to generate greater profits.
Since Josephine is a single mother, she will use the profits of the business to pay school fees for her child, buy for herself and the child personal items like clothes, pay house bills, take care of her siblings and provide basic needs for the family to improve on their standard of living.
Josephine hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and construct a permanent house.
Josephine 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.
