Gloria's story

Gloria is 23 years old and lives in the town of Gabba in the Makindye region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Gloria has been working hard to manage her beverage business which sells soft drinks like passion juice, water, and soda.

To help expand her business, Gloria has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy crates of soda, sugar for the passion juice, and drinking water. It will help Gloria to generate greater profits and her production will increase and attract more revenue. She will manage to buy food for her family.

She hopes that in the future she will be able to build rental houses and become a landlady.

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.
