A loan of $200 helped to buy more different fashionable clothes for resale.

Sadra's story

She is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kyengera in the Kampala west region of Uganda. For the past 2 years, she has been working hard to manage her small business, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Sadra has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more different fashionable clothes for resale, and will help her to generate greater profits and open up a stationery business. Sadra hopes that in the future she will be able to own a very big stationery store.

Sadra is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to micro-finance 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.
