A loan of $275 helped to purchase more clothes to resell.

Milly's story

Milly is 18 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Mukono region of Uganda. She has no children. For the past three years, Milly has been working hard to manage her boutique shop.

To help expand her business, Milly has requested a loan of 700,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase more clothes to sell, which will help Milly generate greater profits and take care of herself and be independent. Milly hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the the shop into a big boutique.

Milly 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.
