Patricia's story

Patricia is 18 years old and lives in the town of Seeta in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past year, Patricia has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells sugar, soap, milk, bread and juice.

To help expand her business, Patricia has requested a loan of 250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more essential commodities like milk, bread, sugar and soap for resale, will help Patricia to generate greater profits and support her family with the basic needs and save some of the money for future use. Patricia hopes that in the future she will be able to own a whole sale shop.

Patricia 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.
