Amina, a 36-year-old married mother of three children, two of whom are currently in school, lives in the town of Mbale in the Mbale region of Uganda. For the past five years, she has been working hard to manage her clothing business, which sells all types of clothes.
To help expand her business and increase her profits, Amina has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda in order to buy more clothes. Amina hopes that in the future she will be able to build a house for her family.
