A loan of $150 helped to buy more dry beans.

Nazipha's story

Nazipha is 20 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fortportal region of Uganda. She is married and has 3 children, 2 of them currently in school. For the past 3 years, Nazipha has been working hard to manage her small business which sells dry beans.

To help expand her business, Nazipha has requested a loan of 350,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more dry beans, and will help Nazipha to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her children. Nazipha hopes that in the future, she will be able to build a good commercial house for herself.

Nazipha 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.
