but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy braids, hair oil, and weaves for her salon.

Jackline's story

Jackline is 29 years old and lives in the town of Nansana, which is in the Nansana region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are currently in school. For the past five years, Jackline has been working hard to manage her beauty salon where she plaits hair, braids, weaves, administers treatments, and does retouches.

To help expand her business, Jackline has requested a loan of 1,600,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy braids, hair oil, and weaves. This will help Jackline generate greater profits so that she will be able to provide for her family, thus improving their standard of living. In the future, Jackline hopes to buy land and build rentals.

Jackline 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.
