Juliet's story

Juliet is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kisaasi in the Kireka region of Uganda. For the past five years, Juliet has been working hard to manage her beauty salon, where she does hairdressing.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 1,800,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase enough weaves, hair lotions, hair treatments and a hair dryer to attract more customers, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits. She will be able to buy food for her family and pay school fees for her siblings. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to turn her salon into a training school.

Juliet 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.
