Hildah's story

Hildah is 24 years old and lives in the town of Abaita Ababiri in the Abaita Ababiri region of Uganda. For the past five years, Hildah has been working hard to manage her fish selling business in which she sells smoked fish.

To help expand her business, Hildah has requested a loan of 1,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more fish to sell. It will help Hildah to generate greater profits, manage to take care of herself and pay her medical bills. Hildah hopes that in the future, she will be able to have the biggest fish business in the entire community and buy a plot of land for building rental houses.

Hildah 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.
