Hariet Eve's story

Hariet Eve is 16 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past 1 year, Hariet Eve has been working hard to manage her tailoring business, which sews and sells dresses, skirts and shirts.

To help expand her business, Hariet Eve has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more sewing threads and materials, and will help Hariet Eve to generate greater profits. Hariet Eve 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 on their standards of living. Hariet Eve hopes that in the future she will be able to open up a beauty salon in order to generate more income.

Hariet Eve 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.
