Joan Apiyo Group's story
To help expand her business, Joan has requested a share of a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to purchase baking flour, cooking oil and other items to support the business. It will help Joan Apiyo to generate greater profits and improve her family's standard of living by providing them enough food.
Joan hopes that in the future she will be able to set up her own supermarket, buy a plot of land and build a commercial house for her family.
Joan Apiyo 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.
