A loan helped to buy and stock more sacks of maize flour, sugar, and beans.


Nulu's story

Nulu is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kasangati in the Kasangati region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, who are both currently in school. For the past four years, Nulu has been working hard to manage her restaurant, which sells cooked food.

To help expand her business, Nulu has requested a loan of 1,250,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy and stock more sacks of maize flour, sugar, and beans to sell at her convenient store. This will help Nulu to generate greater profits. She will use the profits to pay her kids' school fees.

Nulu hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy a fridge to start selling soft drinks to her customers.

Nulu 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.


This loan is special because:

It offers training programs in life skills for young women.
