A loan of $200 helped to purchase more clothes to sell.

Teddy's story

Teddy is 22 years old and lives in the town of Nansana in the Kampala west region of Uganda. For the past two years, Teddy has been working hard to manage her clothes store, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Teddy has requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more clothes to sell, and will help Teddy to generate greater profits and expand her business into a wholesale shop. Teddy hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Teddy 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.
