A loan of $125 helped to buy more shoes to sell in her store.


Moureen's story

Moureen's program is comprised of hard-working women. Moureen is 18 years old and lives in the town of Mukono, in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past year, Moureen has been working hard to manage the store where she sells shoes.

To help expand her business, Moureen has requested a loan of 300000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more shoes for the store, and it will help Moureen to generate greater profits so she can pay school fees. Moureen hopes that she will be able to be a successful entrepreneur in the future

Moureen 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.
