A loan of $150 helped to stock more new fashionable clothes for resale.


Gorret's story

Gorret is 23 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past year, Gorret has been working hard to manage her small clothing business.

To help expand her business, Gorret has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more new fashionable clothes for resale, and will help Gorret to generate greater profits and add to the business so it can expand. Gorret hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand her business into a big shop.

Gorret 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.
