To help expand her business, Eva has requested a loan of 700,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock a larger variety of different items such as cooking oil and maize flour for the store, and will help Eva to generate greater profits and take care of her family. Eva hopes that in the future she will be able to have a better life. Eva 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.
