A loan helped to stock more maize flour, soya flour and beans for resale.


Jennifer's Group's story

Jennifer's group is comprised of 2 hard working women. Jennifer is 20 years old and lives in the town of Lira in the Lira region of Uganda. She has one child. For the past 2 years, Jennifer has been working hard to manage her produce store from which she sells maize flour and beans.

To help expand her business, Jennifer has requested a share of a loan of 900,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to stock more maize flour, soya flour and beans for resale. This will help Jennifer to generate greater profits and pay the family medical bills.

Jennifer hopes that in the future she will be able to own a wholesale shop.

Jennifer 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.
