A loan of $250 helped to stock more clothes to sell.


Faridah's story

Faridah is 22 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are currently in school.

For the past two years, Faridah has been working hard to manage her clothes store.

To help expand her business, Faridah has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more clothes to sell, and it will help Faridah to generate greater profits and support her family with the basic needs. Faridah hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business into a wholesale business.

Faridah 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.
