Nuluyati's story

Nuluyati is 18 years old and lives in the town of Zirobwe in the Kasangati region of Uganda. For the past three years, Nuluyati has been working hard to manage her retail business, which sells maize flour, sugar, soap, and green bananas.

To help expand her business, Nuluyati has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy soap, sugar, and green bananas and will help Nuluyati to generate greater profits. Nuluyati will be in a position to afford more basic needs and also meet her family's basic needs, hence improving on their standard of living. Nuluyati hopes that in the future she will be able to construct a residential house.

Nuluyati 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.
