Maria's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase more clothes to sell.
To help expand her business, Maria has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more clothes, and will help Maria to generate greater profits.
Maria will use the profits of her business to assist her husband in paying school fees for their children, buy for herself personal items like clothes, pay house bills and provide basic needs for the family like medical care and food, thereby improving on their standard of living.
Maria hopes that in the future she will be able to build rentals in order to generate more income.
Maria 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.
