Cathy's story

Cathy is 28 years old and lives in the town of Kalerwe in the Kawempe region of Uganda. She is married and has three children who are all currently in school. For the past five years, Cathy has been working hard to manage her beverages business, where she sells soft drinks like passion juice, water and sodas.

To help expand her business, Cathy has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy enough crates of soda, sugar for the passion juice and drinking water, and will help Cathy to generate greater profits and her production will increase and attract more revenue. She will manage to buy food for her family. Cathy hopes that in the future she will be able to buy a fridge and open up another outlet that sells soft drinks.

Cathy is a member of BRAC's Microfinance program (MF). The program primarily serves small group members like Cathy who do not have collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown and qualify for microloans.
