A loan helped to purchase enough clothing patterns to make new dresses.

Lilian's story

Lilian is 27 years old and lives in the town of Mattuga in the Kawempe region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, 2 of whom are currently in school. For the past 4 years, Lilian has been working hard to manage her tailoring business in which she sews clothes for sale.

To help expand her business, Lilian has requested a loan of 1800000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase enough clothing patterns to make new dresses. This will help Lilian to generate greater profits and improve her family standard of living by providing them enough food, clothes and shelter.

Lilian hopes that in the future she will be able to own a bigger design tailoring business in town and build rentals.

Lilian is a member of BRAC's microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small group members like Lilian who do not have collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
