A loan of $200 helped to buy more garments to sell.


Cissy's story

Cissy is 22 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, one of whom is currently in school. For the past three years, she has been working hard to manage her business, where she sells clothing for babies. To help expand her business, Cissy has requested a loan for 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. She will use the loan to buy more garments to sell, and this will allow her to develop her business and earn more profits. Her goal for the future is to expand the size of her business.

Cissy 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.
