Charity's Group's story

Charity's group is comprised of two hard working women. Charity is 20 years old and lives in the town of Pakwach in the Nebbi region of Uganda. She is married and has one child. For the past four years, Charity has been working hard to manage her retail business, which sells dry fish and dry cassava.

To help expand her business, Charity has requested a share of 1,300,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more cassava and fish for sell, and will help Charity to generate greater profits. Charity will be able realize more profits and therefore, she will be able to cater to her family needs, including paying school fees for her child, hence improving their standards of living.

Charity hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a plot of land.

Charity 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.
