Rebecca is 36 years old and lives in the town of Kibuli in the Kampala District of Uganda. She is married and has two children who do not currently attend school. For the past four years, Rebecca has been working hard to manage her poultry business, which deals in chicken and eggs.
To help expand the business, Rebecca has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase feed, trays and more chicks, and will help Rebecca to generate greater profits and increase her income. Rebecca hopes that in the future she will be able to expand the business further.
