A loan of $100 helped to buy more material that will be used to make crafts to sell.


Beatrice's story

Beatrice is 16 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. For the past one year, Beatrice has been working hard to manage her handicraft business, in which she sells handcrafted items.

To help expand her business, Beatrice has requested a loan of 250,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more material that will be used to make crafts for selling, and will help Beatrice to generate greater profits and take good care of herself. Beatrice hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand into a craft mall.

Beatrice 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.
