Immaculate's Group's story

Immaculate's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Immaculate is 21 years old and lives in the town of Wobulenzi in the Luwero region of Uganda. For the past two years, Immaculate has been working hard to manage her retail shop, which sells snacks and cooking ingredients.

To help expand her business, Immaculate has requested a loan of 350,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy sugar, and will help Immaculate to generate greater profits and buy food to feed her family. Immaculate hopes that in the future she will be able to expand her business.

Immaculate 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. The ELA program has increased Immaculate's future prospects by helping her to improve her business knowledge.
