Maria's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to buy more chicken.
To help expand her business, Maria has requested a loan of 800,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more chicken and will help Maria generate greater profits. With the profits, Maria will be able to buy personal items like clothes and sanitary towels, pay house bills, and provide basic needs for the family like food, thereby improving their standard of living. Maria hopes that in the future she will be able to renovate her rentals and set up a restaurant in order to generate more income.
Maria 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.
