A loan helped to buy more braids.

Shube's story

Shube is 23 years old and lives in the town of Iganga in the Iganga region of Uganda. For the past 3 years, Shube has been working hard to manage her beauty salon, which offers services like plaiting of braids and weaves.

To help expand her business, Shube has requested a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more braids, and will help Shube to generate greater profits. Using the profits of the business, Shube will be able to buy for herself personal items like clothes, pay house bills and provide basic needs for the family like food thereby improving on their standard of living. Shube hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land and build rentals in order to generate more income.

Shube 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.
