Bridget's story

Bridget is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Njeru region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Bridget has been working hard to manage her tailoring business which makes clothes for sale.

To help expand her business, Bridget has requested a loan of 900,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase enough clothes patterns to make new dresses. It will help Bridget generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living by providing them with enough food.

Bridget hopes that in the future, she will be able to improve her clothes making for business expansion.

Bridget 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.
