A loan of $150 helped to buy cassava flour to resell.

Juliet's story

Juliet is 18 years old and lives in the town of Rukoki in the Fort Portal region of Uganda. She is single and has one child. For the past two years, Juliet has been working hard to manage her small business of selling cassava flour.

To help expand her business, Juliet has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy cassava flour for resell, and will help Juliet to generate greater profits and pay for her medical bills. Juliet hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house of her own.

Juliet 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.
