A loan of $225 helped to buy more new clothes to resell.

Anita's story

Anita, 20 years old, lives in the town of Hima in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is married and has one child who is currently in school. For the past 3 years, Anita has been working hard to manage her small business selling clothes.

To help expand her business, Anita has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more new clothes to resell and will help Anita to generate greater profits and pay for some school supplies such as books and pencils. Anita hopes that, in the future, she will be able to build a house for herself.

Anita 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.
