Teddy's story

Teddy is 19 years old and lives in the town of Njeru in the Njeru region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children with 2 of them currently in school. For the past 2 years, Teddy has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells all kinds of adult clothes.

To help expand her business, Teddy has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase tops, trousers, and skirts to sell, and will help Teddy to generate greater profits and manage to pay some of the house bills and basic needs for the family. Teddy hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build a house for her family.

Teddy 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.
