A loan of $325 helped to buy more clothes for selling.

Florence's story

Florence is 21 years old and lives in the town of Lugazi in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children, with one of them currently in school. For the past three years, Florence has been working hard to manage her clothes store, which sells clothes.

To help expand her business, Florence has requested a loan of 800,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more clothes for selling, and will help Florence to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her child. Florence hopes that in the future, she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Florence 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.
