Elly's story

Elly, a 34-year-old married mother of two children, both of whom are in school, lives in the town of Masaka in the Masaka region of Uganda. For the past four years, Elly has operated a small retail shop that sells items such as sugar and salt.



To help expand her business, Elly has requested a loan of 2000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more essential commodities such as sugar and salt for resale in the hope of generating greater profits to pay school fees for her children. In the future, Elly hopes to expand her business further.



Elly is a member of BRAC's small enterprise (SEP) program, which has helped her prospects for the future by improving her business.
