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


Sarah's story

Sarah is 21 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past three years, Sarah has been working hard to manage her clothing store.

To help expand her business, Sarah has requested a loan of 600,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes to sell, and will help Sarah to generate greater profits and take care of her parents’ medical bills. Sarah hopes that in the future, she will be able to own a big shop that sells shoes.

Sarah 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.
