Mariam's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase more fabric.
To help expand her business, Mariam has requested a loan of 900,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more fabric, and will help Mariam to generate greater profits. Mariam will use the profits of the business to buy for herself personal items like shoes and clothes, pay house bills and provide basic needs for the family like food, thereby improving their standard of living. Mariam hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a beauty salon in order to generate more income.
Mariam 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.
