A loan of $175 helped to buy more raw food such as bananas and cassava to sell.


Angella's story

Angella is 20 years old and lives in the town of Kayunga in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past two years, Angella has been working hard to manage her small market where she sells raw food.

To help expand her business, Angella has requested a loan of 400,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more raw food such as bananas and cassava to sell and will help Angella to generate greater profits and take good care of herself and her family. Angella hopes that in the future, she will be able to have a better life.

Angella 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.
