Alice's Group's story

Alice's group is comprised of two hard-working women. Alice is 17 years old and lives in the town of Nakifuma in the Kasangati region of Uganda. For the past three years, Alice has been working hard to manage her restaurant which deals in selling cooked food.

To help expand her business, Alice has requested a share of a loan of 1,400,000 Ugandan shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy a fridge, a television and a home theater PA system which she will put in her restaurant to attract customers. This will help Alice to generate greater profits, and she plans to open up another business of a bar (saloon). Alice hopes that in the future, she will be able to start up a retail shop which will add enough profits for her family.

Alice 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.
