Gloria's story

Gloria is 18 years old and lives in the town of Lira in the Lira region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. In the past, Gloria has been working hard to manage her bakery, which sells fast foods.

To help expand her business, Gloria has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase baking flour, cooking oil and other items to support the business. This will help Gloria to generate greater profits and improve on her family standards of living by providing them enough food.

Gloria hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Gloria 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.
