Hadijah's story

Hadijah is 21 years old and lives in the town of Natete in Uganda's Kampala North region. She is married and has two children, both of whom are enrolled in school. For the last three years, she has worked hard at her business, which consists of selling clothes. To help expand her business, she has requested a loan of 200,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use the loan to buy more clothes to sell, and use the additional income to increase her profits and pay her children's school fees. Her goal for the future is to continue expanding her business.

Hadijah is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities and a forum for life-skills training. The ELA program has increased Hadijah's prospects by helping her improve her business.
