Margaret's story

Margaret is 23 years old and lives in the town of Njeru in the Njeru region of Uganda. She is married and has two children. For the past three years, Margaret has been working hard to manage her boutique, which sells all kinds of adult clothes .

To help expand her business, Margaret has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase tops, trousers and skirts for sale and will help Margaret to generate greater profits and manage to pay some of the house bills and basic needs for the family. She hopes that in the future she will be able to own a big boutique in her town.

Margaret 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.
